The Many Names of Fall Creek
Names tell a story. Known to the Cayugas as Nogaene, Fall Creek flows past Tompkins County places whose names acknowledge the many connections we have with the creek--from business success to technical triumph, and even personal tragedies.
Explore the Fall Creek sub-watershed and its various place names using the interactive map created by Karen Edelstein.
The exhibition is co-sponsored by:
