Route 169 National Scenic Byway – Management Plan Update
Today, the state and national significance of Route 169 rests primarily in its intimate scenic character and historic features and points of interest. Stone walls, mature trees, colonial village centers, industrial-era mill villages, farmsteads, and consistent patterns of land use over time, allow the traveler to sample the landscape and culture of southern New England.
TLGV is pleased to announce awards for a small grant round for projects that preserve, interpret, promote, or market historical and cultural resources. TLGV encouraged projects that use digital technology, social media, or creative and innovative approaches to bring stories from The Last Green Valley to life. Click here to learn more about the latest grant recipients. Funds will be dispersed on a reimbursement basis and must be matched 1:1 by cash or in-kind contributions.
