First Old House Fair, 1993
Historic Ithaca held its first Old House Fair in June of 1993. This two-day event, the first of many held once a year, brought together restoration-minded craftspeople and contractors, as well as more than 300 visitors. In later fairs, architectural styles, such as Greek Revival, Victorian, and Craftsman, were chosen as themes. The most recent Old House Fair, held in 2004, was a Celebration of Salvage and Reuse. Historic Ithaca revived the Old House Fair in the fall of 2016. view photos here!
