Although Ithaca might be better known for its gorges, vibrant community, and colleges, it also holds a macabre past. Find yourself face to face with the most haunted archival items in our collections (original murder masks, and items from unsolved crimes!) and explore the Haunted History of Downtown Ithaca with Heritage Ambassadors Sherri La Torre and Ben Sandberg. Dive into true stories of murder, jealousy, and insanity drawn directly from our archival collections. This program is for ages 16 to 116.

The tour will take about 1 hour of walking in Downtown Ithaca.
