Tompkins County Veterans Exhibit & Archival Support

People living in Tompkins County have served and fought in virtually every war since the founding of our nation. In honor of Veterans Day we are proud to feature a small display celebrating some of these people and honoring their service. From the 1780s to the 1950s, these photos and documents showcase some of the diverse people who sacrificed so much for us all. The exhibit will be on display during the month of November in our Exhibit Hall.

The History Center is also offering FREE archival prints from our Photograph Collections for all veterans throughout the month of November. Contact for details.
