Are you a long-time resident who has heard tales about a Tompkins County place and how it came to be named? As a newcomer or visitor, have you wondered about an unusual place name and its origin? Do you have family ties to the region that show up as a place name or two?
We’d like to hear from you.
Use this form to share any tidbits of information, questions, stories, and photos you have related to places in Tompkins County.
Together we can crowd-source a more in-depth story of place names in our region–a story that will reveal patterns in our county’s history and development.
