Welcome! The History Center is requiring that all visitors continue to wear masks inside the Tompkins Center for History & Culture. Our visitors include young audiences and others who are unable to be vaccinated. We appreciate your respect and awareness in following our Health & Safety Protocols to keep all our visitors safe.
HISTORY & HERITAGE MONTHS
The History Center in Tompkins County strives to explore diverse histories and experiences of Tompkins County in all of our exhibits and programming. Identity-themed "heritage months" are a powerful tool to highlight specific histories and draw attention to collections and archival resources we have available year round.
History and heritage months are a celebration of culture, community, and contribution to our shared region of Central New York.
Explore the pages and resources related to each history and heritage month by clicking on their icon. Pages will be highlighted under the "Events" tab during their month, but are available year round.
**Additional pages are being researched and designed and will become available between 2021-2022. If you would like to help create these pages please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or explore our other volunteer options here.
Irish-American Heritage Month, Arab-American Heritage Month, Italian-American Heritage & Culture Month, Caribbean American Heritage Month, National Deaf History Month, Immigrant History Month, PRIDE Month, and LGBT History Month.
