Calumet Heritage Partnership

Identifying, protecting, and preserving the natural, cultural, and recreational heritage of the Calumet region of Illinois and Indiana

About the Calumet Heritage Partnership

The Calumet Heritage Partnership is a diverse, bi-state partnership of environmental, cultural and historical organizations and individuals, libraries, educational institutions, municipalities, and governmental agencies.  Each partner is committed to celebrating, preserving and protecting the unique heritage of the Calumet region.

The Calumet Heritage Partnership was founded in 1998 as a bi-state all-volunteer, non-profit organization with the goal of pursuing the creation of a Calumet National Heritage Area.  It held the first annual Calumet Heritage Conference in 1999 at Calumet College of St. Joseph.
