About EMHR

Washington Street StationThe Endless Mountains Heritage Region (EMHR) was created in 1998 as a non-profit agency within the Heritage Areas Program.  EMHR is one of twelve current heritage areas in Pennsylvania designated by the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources.  We proudly serve the four-county rural area of Bradford, Sullivan, Susquehanna and Wyoming Counties in Northeast Pennsylvania.  Our industrial theme is agriculture as we are known for our unmatched rural landscapes shaped by centuries of farming and timbering and the unique characteristics of our people living with the land.  Our mission is "to maintain and enhance the unique rural character and culture of our Endless Mountains".

Since our formation, the agency has provided capacity-building support and financial support to partner organizations to fulfill this mission, increasing our quality of life and prompting visitor interest.  Since 1998, EMHR has provided grant assistance to more than 100 projects. EMHR serves as a regional lead organization of the Susquehanna Greenway Partnership and is involved in various greenway, land conservation, and trail initiatives in the region, as well as scenic byways and vista enhancements.

The Endless Mountains Heritage Region offices are located on the second floor of the Washington Street Station in Towanda, at the corner of Washington Street and the Merrill Parkway, overlooking the Susquehanna River.  We can be contacted by phone at (570) 265-1528, or by e-mail at emhr@epix.net
