TOMPKINS COUNTY HISTORICAL SOCIETIES & COMMUNITY GROUPS

Historical societies and other community groups are independent organizations created through shared interests in the Tompkins County community. The History Center supports their programming and provides meeting spaces for some of these organizations but is not the coordinator or originator of the various societies. You can also explore our Community Partners page to learn more. 

Are you part of a local historical group that isn't listed? Please email community@thehistorycenter.net with your information to be listed on this page. We also welcome historical groups and societies looking for meeting spaces to contact us about available event spaces at the Tompkins Center for History & Culture

ITHACA DESCENDANTS OF HOLOCAUST SURVIVORS

At least one member of our families survived the Holocaust. They emigrated to safety prior to, during, or after World War II. The overall focus of this group is an exploration of our family's relationship to the Holocaust and how our ancestors and how we have been, or continue to be impacted. Some of us are interested in Social Action, some in Holocaust Education, and some in Intergenerational issues. Many of us are interested in aspects of all three areas or their intersection.

Learn more about the group here on the Ithaca Area United Jewish Community website.

Contact them here to learn about meeting times.

CORNELL HISTORICAL RAILROAD SOCIETY


The Cornell Historical Railroad Society is both a local organization and is also a chapter of the National Railway Historical Society. We are interested in railroads, chiefly, but not exclusively railroads of the United States, their operations, equipment, history. We tend to concentrate on local railroads, most of which involved Ezra Cornell in their early days, especially the Lehigh Valley Railroad. We take our name from Ezra, since we are not officially connected with the university of his name. Our meetings are open to the general public, but we welcome anyone to become a member, either of our local group, or also of the National organization. Our meetings feature presentations on such things as rail history, rail travel, model railroading and rail collectibles. Members receive a newsletter ten times a year.
