This specialty tour offers audiences to explore prohibition from the safety of the 21st century. The walking tour visits some of the local haunts that sprung up after Ithaca went dry in October 1918, several years before the Volstead Act enforced the 18th Amendment. Join The History Center for scandalous tales of exciting raids and intoxicated shenanigans set against the backdrop of Ithaca during the roaring 1920’s.
**This is not a food/beverage tour**

#All tours will meet in the atrium of the Tompkins Center for History & Culture on the Ithaca Commons.
