The History Center Wins 2022 'Best of Ithaca' Award!

The locals know that the annual Best of Ithaca awards are a time honored tradition. Ithaca Times readers submit their write-in ballots to nominate the "Best of" our local community in the categories of: Food & Drink, Entertainments, Essentials, People, and Places. 

The History Center was deeply honored this year to have been nominated as the "Best Keeper of Local Knowledge." 

While a number of local historians have received an award in the "Best People" category before, this is a rare instance of an organization being recognized. 

Our archives are ever expanding (thanks to the generosity and historic preservation spirit of our community) and we are deeply grateful that with our new space at the Tompkins Center for History & Culture, expanded open hours in both the Exhibit Hall & Research Library, and our growing online presence we are able to share and connect ever more people to the wealth of local knowledge and community history we want to share and preserve for everyone!

Thank you to all the Ithaca Times readers who nominated us, and congratulations to all the 2022 awardees!
