Names on the Land-Tompkins County celebrates its first year of collecting county place name histories. 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.
