As part of Tompkins County’s ongoing Bicentennial celebration during 2017, the Town of Enfield will mark the milestone at 11 a.m. Saturday, November 18, at the Enfield Town Hall, located at 168 Enfield Main Road, Enfield.
In addition to unveiling a new cast-iron historic marker for Enfield, the event will include brief welcoming remarks, and free hot cider and doughnuts.
Tompkins County was created in April 1817, by an act of the New York State Legislature, and the event has been marked in various ways throughout this 200th anniversary year. According to Michael Lane, chair of the county legislature, this extended celebration is geared to “allow our residents to become better educated about the county’s history.” To that end, he said, activities have been planned and presented all around the county “that are serious, glorious, and fun for all.”
