Fall Creek Program - The Many Names of Fall Creek

Event Date: 
Saturday, December 2, 2017 - 2:00pm
Event Location: 
The History Center 401 E State St, Ithaca

Names on the Land-Tompkins County celebrates its first year of collecting county place-name histories with a program that begins at 2 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 2 at The History Center, 401 E State St., Ithaca.

The Many Names of Fall Creek is the featured program in this exhibit. Know to the Cayugas as Nogaene, Fall Creek flows past Tompkins County places whose names reflect the many connections our county has with the waterway.

Municipal historians and local history enthusiasts from around the county will share how place names offer an approach to telling local history. Place names tell us about the people who have settled the area, the geography that influences where we live, work, and play, and the values we hold important. Learn how digital tools help us visualize these sometimes forgotten places and how they can reveal patterns of our history.
