The Heritage Passport serves a number of useful purposes for curious and adventurous visitors. Inspired in part by the wildly successful National Parks Passport of a similar nature, this booklet seeks to connect travelers to the dramatic stories, people, events, and places that profoundly shaped local and national history.
This passport conveys the stories of seventeen unique sites in the Blair County, Pennsylvania area. While this is hardly a comprehensive directory of all historic landmarks in the region, the locations included are able to offer context with exhibits, guided tours, and educational programming.
Each site listed has its own stamp, so one can mark the respective page upon visitation. Passport participants are also encouraged to become engaged with the sites via opinion and trivia-based questions scattered throughout these pages.
