WEB-BASED RESEARCH PROJECTS

The list below includes websites built to share specific aspects of Tompkins County history. Each project engaged with and utilized archival materials and knowledge from The History Center in Tompkins County and Historic Ithaca archival collections, but were developed and maintained by groups and individuals independent from our organizations. The research compiled remains available at the web pages below, but not all the pages are considered active projects in the community. If you're looking for active local history groups and projects explore here.  

The History Center in Tompkins County cannot guarantee the historical accuracy of these projects, and any views shared in them are not representative of The History Center's policies or historic approach. 

ITHACA BUILDS (2013-2016)

CAYUGA HEIGHTS HISTORY PROJECT (2013-2018)

The Cayuga Heights History Project was founded in 2013 to launch historic preservation efforts within the Village of Cayuga Heights, Ithaca, in honor of its centennial. The program collected house histories, preserved public and private documentary and material sources, researched the history of the village through its living residents and built structures, and collaborated with community partners to share information about Cayuga Heights history.
