#Walk through history
After a two week hiatus, we are thrilled to welcome everyone back to the Exhibit Hall for opening weekend of our new exhibit reCOUNT: Facing our Census.
Using themes such as education, family origins, employment, race, and census taking, reCOUNT expands Tompkins County history through six interactive exhibits. Beginning with the first U.S. Census in 1790, the exhibits will trace the development of the county and the census across 23 decades. reCOUNT will inform our understanding of Tompkins County, and position audiences to think critically about local history’s impact on our lives.
Opens Friday April 1st from 10am-8pm. Evening opening will happen in tandem with First Friday Gallery Night throughout Downtown Ithaca.
Learn more about the exhibit at thehistorycenter.net/reCOUNT
reCOUNT is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature. The development of HistoryForge was supported through funding provided by the National Historical Publications and Records Commission.
