Celebrate Black History in Cayuga County

February marks Black History Month, a time dedicated to celebrating culture, heritage and the contributions made by African Americans throughout history. During the month, many students across the northeast U.S. have time off from school, making it the perfect opportunity for a family trip to Cayuga County, where you can experience history in the place it was made. 

Cayuga County is home to stories of individuals, past and present, who have shaped our world and the way we live today. As you celebrate Black History Month, recognize the contributions made by the region’s most influential African Americans. Read on to learn more and start mapping out your family’s Cayuga County experience.
