Interior secretary formally establishes Harriet Tubman national park in Auburn

After nearly two decades of work, it’s now official: Cayuga County is home to the Harriet Tubman National Historical Park.

Interior Secretary Sally Jewell formally established the park at ceremony Tuesday at the Department of the Interior’s Washington headquarters.

Zion Church and rectory on Parker Street will be part of the newly created park.
