This is the list of historic events and sites that make up New York state's new "Paths Through History" heritage tourism initiative announced August 28, 2012.

From the release (https://www.governor.ny.gov/press/08282012-Path-Through-History):

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today unveiled New York's new "Path Through History," a statewide roadmap that ties historically and culturally significant sites, locations and events throughout the Empire State.

This new effort to highlight New York's rich heritage aims to not only showcase New York State's history and cultural significance but also promote tourism and economic development in communities in every region of the state. The Governor formally unveiled the initiative during today's "Path Through History" conference at Empire State Plaza.

"The Path Through History will highlight the rich history that exists in New York State by showcasing more than 200 hundred of our most significant sites and historic milestones," said Governor Cuomo. "From Mark Twain writing Huckleberry Finn in Elmira to John Coltrane's one of a kind jazz being played on Long Island, we have done and seen it all in New York and now we are putting our state's heritage on display for the world to enjoy. The regional tourism plans highlight the best our state has to offer and will give us a deeper appreciation of our past. I thank the Task Force for their hard work on this initiative and I encourage all New Yorkers and visitors to take advantage of these sites."

At the conference, the Governor announced that the state will allocate $1 million to jumpstart ten regional heritage tourism marketing plans. In addition, Governor Cuomo unveiled proposed new road signs to be installed on major state highways to promote local historic sites from New York's history, and previewed a new website that will have additional information on the sites. . . ."
