Thames River Heritage Park Signs 17 Partners

TRHP Partners pose for a photo before the September planning meeting at partner site Lyman Allyn Art Museum.

Since its inception, the TRHP vision has been to engage the public with programming and events that promote heritage and culture. With a host of historic and cultural sites in the park we have a plethora of opportunities to build the Park experience through collaboration.

We are now doing just that. Seventeen historic, cultural and heritage sites in New London and Groton have signed on as TRHP Partners to collaborate on programming, events and a host of initiatives to create a Park experience that is diverse, robust, memorable and fun for the whole family. There are two categories of TRHP Partners: Site Partners which have a heritage or cultural location within the Park open to visitors, and Institutional Partners which are committed to preserving and promoting our culture and history which may not have a site such as historic associations, “Friends” organizations, and educational institutions.

Here is the list of those who have signed on as TRHP Partners that will work together to develop and promote a TRHP experience that will attract a broad audience to the region. You’ll be hearing a lot more about this collaboration as programming efforts take shape.
