Celebrating Rural Heritage

Rod Howe

The presentation will wrap up the 2017 Celebrating Rural Heritage series. We will focus on the county's rural history and heritage assets to answer the questions: What are the county's rural heritage legacies? What buildings, customs, folklife, and events connect us to our rural history? Is there a distinct rural culture in Tompkins County?  This will be a combination of brief presentations, interspersed with rural images and conversation.
