For most of the history of the DeWitt Historical Society, now The History Center in Tompkins County, our organizational focus was on tangible physical connections with local history. We grew our archives and our three dimensional object collection, created in-person programming, and curated exhibits in our space and across Tompkins County promoting the rich and varied stories and experiences of this region. As virtual learning and engagement has grown in leaps and bounds over the last decade we've started to work on creating more virtual resources and learning opportunities. Scroll down for a small selection of the many programs we hope to create digital versions of in upcoming years.
