Downtown Ithaca Architectural Tour

A short, pretty walk through town that takes you past some of Ithaca's architectural gems.

Much of the information in this tour comes from previous publications of The History Center and Historic Ithaca. A resource for many of Ithaca's downtown buildings is the 1982 book "Ithaca and Its Past: The History and Architecture of the Downtown", available online through the Tompkins County Public Library.

The Henry St John Historical Walking Tour

The Henry St John neighborhood, just south of downtown Ithaca, is a well-preserved historic district of late 19th- and early 20th-century homes. Named for Ithaca's third mayor, the district was home to many prominent figures during the city's transition from sleepy village to vibrant city. Within the neighborhood you will find excellent examples of the Federal, Greek Revival, Italianate, Second Empire, Gothic Revival, Stick and Queen Anne styles. Please note: most of the buildings are private residences, please stay on the sidewalk!
