"It Takes More Than Nostalgia" - A new exhibit from Historic Ithaca opens at TCPL

TCPL is pleased to announce the opening of a new exhibit in the Avenue of the Friends at Gallery Opening Night on Friday May 6.  The exhibit is sponsored by Historic Ithaca and will be on display through the end of June.

This photographic exhibition highlights key moments and contributions from Historic Ithaca’s 50-year history, beginning in 1966 when the loss of Old City Hall, and the threat of demolitions to come, galvanized community members.

Together they organized to create Historic Ithaca, in part to preserve historic architectural treasures in Ithaca and Tompkins County.  In addition, different artifacts found at “Significant Elements”, Historic Ithaca’s architectural salvage and re-use warehouse, are displayed in the exhibit cases.

For more information about Historic Ithaca and the salvage items which are all available for sale, call Christine O’Malley Preservation Services Coordinator at 607-0273-6633 or go to
