Location:Encompasses 1,086 square miles and 35 towns in the Quinebaug and Shetucket Rivers Valley in northeastern Connecticut and south-central Massachusetts.
Special Features:The Quinebaug and Shetucket Rivers Valley is one of the last unspoiled and undeveloped areas in the northeastern United States and has been called "The Last Green Valley" in the sprawling metropolitan Boston-to-Washington corridor. The region has retained its fundamental rural character, with lush woodlands and clean waterways, authentic sites representing distinct periods of American history (including architecturally significant mill structures and mill villages), and large tracts of parks and other permanent open spaces.
