YOUTH EDUCATION

The History Center’s Youth Education Department is committed to making history “real” and meaningful by underscoring how past events shape present realities.

While the focus of our programs is the history of Tompkins County, we strive to tie local developments to the nation’s history.

To this end, our programs are student-centered, use primary sources and original artifacts where appropriate, and seek to strengthen the general public’s knowledge of the issues which define our times, as well as fostering an appreciation for the past.

In addition to our living history program at the Eight Square Schoolhouse, we host field trips, homeschool groups, collaborative programming, and coordinate with local educators.
