BINGHAMTON, N.Y. - Broome County is ready to share its stories as it participates in the state's Spring edition of Path Through History weekend.

County and tourism officials were joined by representatives of local cultural institutions at the Roberson Museum and Science Center today to preview the weekend's special events.

There are 15 sites in the county that will participate including Techworks, the Bundy Museum, the Ross Park Zoo, the Discovery Center, the Endicott History and Heritage Center, the Phelps Mansion Museum, the Nanticoke Valley Historical Society and, of course, Roberson.

Subjects include Kentucky Derby winner Exterminator, the Link Apollo Lunar Module Simulator and the work of Binghamton architect Isaac Perry.

Judi Hess is director of Visit Binghamton, the local tourism board.

"We're hoping that visitors and residents alike will take advantage and be inspired by all of the attractions that there are to see and do in the area," said Hess.

Visitors are also encouraged to visit five of the area's six historic carousels.

The one at Ross Park in Binghamton is closed for repairs.

All sites are open Saturday with some of them also opening up on Sunday.

The county has created an interactive map with descriptions of each location.
