More than 200 special events are planned for New York State’s Path Through History Weekends, June 7-8 and 14-15, at venues throughout the state.

You might find yourself reminiscing about baseball’s finest at the 75th Anniversary of the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown. Perhaps you’ll cruise through one of New York’s many canals and learn about our fascinating transportation history, or dance to the beat of Native American rhythms that can be traced back over thousands of years ago.

Path Through History Weekends are designed to make it easy to experience the Empire State’s rich heritage and diverse attractions. The chance to relive the laughter at the Lucille Ball Desi Arnaz Museum & Center for Comedy in Jamestown makes the perfect destination for every family. Take pride in New York’s history in Women’s Rights at the National Susan B. Anthony Museum and House in Rochester and see where suffrage leader Susan B. Anthony was arrested for threatening to vote. Appreciate the great outdoors and spend the day exploring Saratoga State Park or Letchworth State Park, renowned as the Grand Canyon of the East.

Interactive science museums, homes of former presidents and artists, living history recreations and former battlefields are among the cultural and historic sites offering discounted or free admission along with hands-on activities and special interest tours during these weekends. Many historic districts and parks will also host festivals, often with live music, crafts and local foods. Whether you’re a sports enthusiast, a nature lover, curious about history or simply want to have fun, these weekends are not to be missed.

The “Path Through History” program, introduced by Governor Andrew M. Cuomo, includes 13 themes used to organize 500-plus heritage sites across the state. The program includes identifying markers on major state highways as well as additional local signage with the distinctive Path Through History logo to help point the way and a web page on provides a list of sites along with information about each one.

In conjunction with Path Through History Weekends, I LOVE NEW YORK’s social media channels will be highlighting the Path’s various themes, with  photos, videos, event itineraries and more.
