Heritage Ambassadors

Rod Howe

Heritage Ambassadors are knowledgeable about the history and rich heritage of Tompkins County and eager to orient visitors to the assets available to explore. The ambassadors help visitors and county residents engage with the history of this unique place.

In late spring/early summer we will initiate a six week pilot heritage ambassadors training program led by The History Center in Tompkins County in collaboration with Historic Ithaca. Participants will get a review of our local history and learn about the organizations that are part of the heritage tourism network. There will be required extra-curricular activities to augment the discussions.

If you are potentially interested in the training program, please send me an email at We promise to make it educational and fun.
