Cortland County Historical Society – Then & Now is Here, oh Wow!

Posted by  //  August 15, 2022  //  Local Business, News

Cortland County Historical Society launches a new hands-on history room for children to experience what life was like in the past.

The Cortland County Historical Society has scheduled the grand opening of the eagerly anticipated Then & Now Children’s Room for Saturday, August 27, 2022, from 1-3pm. This experiential kid’s space is designed to transport children back in time with a child-sized store and log cabin for dramatic play. Hands on activities and historically accurate reproductions will make children feel like they have traveled 100-200 years back in time.

CCHS Director Tabitha Scoville describes the children’s room as an important step in connecting children to the past by sharing stories about people and events that shaped the history of Cortland County. “Children are the future, and they are the ones who will continue to preserve and protect local history when this generation is gone. We must keep the coming generations connected and interested in the stories of the past and how they are relevant to their own lives so that the children of today will be the story keepers of tomorrow.”
