Three houses in three neighborhoods in Ithaca, NY (Fall Creek, 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM, Henry St. John, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM, and Southside, 3:30 PM - 4:30 PM) are chosen to share information about who lived there in 1910. Docents will have a series of questions to engage participants about the lives of the residents. Where did the children attend school, where did the adults work, where did they go to church? If they settled here from another place where did they come from? You will also learn about the buildings in which they lived. From the 1910 census we will have information about relationships, age, race, country of emigration, occupation, literacy, employment and other attributes. You will also learn about the neighborhoods and what was happening in the 1910-1920 decade.
