Path Through History Guidelines
In order to be considered for New York State’s Path Through History heritage tourism program, a site may be either publicly or privately owned or operated, and have a guest experience that makes it accessible, enjoyable, and enriching not only to history buffs but to families and others with even a passing interest in history. Elements such as hours of operation, level of interpretation offered, and amenities such as restrooms and parking are all part of the visitor experience. If you would like to apply to become an official Path Through History site, please complete the nomination form. Once submitted, the Path Through History nomination committee will evaluate your application based on the guidelines below. All nominations will receive a response from the committee within 14 days of applying.
