Want to Walk With Us?


On Friday June 3, The History Center, in conjunction with The Discovery Trail and Kids Discover the Trail, will be participating in the Ithaca Festival Parade in downtown Ithaca.

As part of our Generation to Generation Initiative at The History Center this year we would like to invite all former Eight Square School attendees, all current Eight Square Schoolhouse Living History students, as well as their parents and grandparents to join us in walking! We would like to encourage this year’s Eight Square Schoolhouse Living History students to dress in their period costumes and walk with us in the parade. Teachers, parents, grandparents, siblings and caregivers of the students are also welcome to join us in period costumes! Anyone who supports the History Center or has used the Research Library are also invited to join us.

We will meet at 6:00 p.m. and the parade starts at 6:30 p.m. Contact us for a meeting location.


We hope many of you will join us in this exhilarating one-of-a-kind annual Ithaca event!
