The Many Names of Fall Creek

Tuesday, November 28, 2017 to Saturday, March 31, 2018


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:
Tompkins County Bicentennial Commission and Names on the Land--Tompkins County.
