This historic district contains many of the City's earliest surviving residential, religious and public buildings. The park - originally known as the "public square" - and its surroundings were depicted in the original Village plan prepared by Simeon DeWitt in the early 1800s. During his service as Surveyor General for the State of New York, DeWitt acquired extensive landholdings in Ithaca. To promote settlement, he designed parcels of land around the park for public buildings, churches and the school. Many of these lots continue to serve their intended purposes.
