Westmoreland Heritage is a nonprofit organization focused on promoting heritage and cultural tourism in Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania.
We are a county-wide partnership of organizations, businesses, and individuals committed to two goals: expanding cultural and heritage tourism in our area, and supporting efforts to educate county residents about their remarkable history.
Based at the Westmoreland County Historical Society in Greensburg, Westmoreland Heritage is a private nonprofit advocacy group that sees economic potential in the development and marketing of our historical and cultural assets. Westmoreland Heritage grew out of the 1999 Greensburg Bicentennial celebration when community leaders decided to consider ways in which the area's rich history could be made more understandable and appealing to both residents and visitors.
Westmoreland Heritage collaborates—but does not compete—with historic sites, cultural centers, historical societies, educators, businesses, local and state government officials, and the Laurel Highland Visitors Bureau. Today our Westmoreland Heritage Community Partners number more than forty individuals and organizations from all areas of the county, working together to stimulate interest in Westmoreland County heritage and culture and to encourage tourism of the region.
