10 Years, 100 Milestones!

10 Years, 100 Milestones!
Celebrating the special places & people of Essex County

Celebrate your organization!
2006 marks the 10th anniversary of the creation of the Essex National Heritage Area! To celebrate the
occasion, the ENHC will shine a spotlight on the 100 remarkable people, places and organizations that
make the Area such a special place to live - 100 Milestones!
Throughout the year, in all aspects of its work, the ENHC will honor the organizations, sites and events
that, over the last decade, have come to connect people to place in new and creative ways.</br>
You can play a role! We're accepting nominations for 100 Milestones that occurred in the
region during the last 10 years. What are milestones? They are stories about people and
organizations that have worked to foster a greater appreciation of our regional heritage and that have
enhanced the quality of life for all who live here. Organizations like yours! And people like you!

Harold Burnham / Essex Shipbuilding, who by continuing to work in a traditional industry while meeting modern demands, is helping to preserve distinctive regional heritage.

The Coastal Trails Coalition, a group of citizens from four communities who have joined together in an effort to re-invent old rail trails as bicycle and pedestrian trails for all to enjoy.

Peabody Essex Museum, who by re-imaging its role within the community, has instilled a greater sense of appreciation for the region's contribution to national and world history.
