NCCHP 4th Annual Ice Harvest
SAVE THE DATE! Saturday, February 4th from 12:00 – 3:00 is the fourth annual ice harvest on the shop pond at 42 Water Street in Granville. Come join Dennis Picard of Storrowton Village Museum as he demonstrates and encourages others to take a turn using the ice saw, breaker bar, pike pole and ice tongs to harvest ice the way our ancestors did in the days before refrigeration. For your listening pleasure, Rick Spencer will be performing a selection of songs from his “Historic Songs of American Work and Trades” program during the ice harvest. Guided tours of the museum will also be available. There is no charge for the event or for refreshments, but donations will be gratefully accepted. Rain date will be Sunday, 2/5. Check the museum website www.ncchp.org for updates.
New winter hours are in effect for January - March. Museum tours will only be available by appointment Monday – Friday for groups of 10 or more, or when the museum is open for special events. The Gift Shop is open daily Monday - Friday from 8:30 – 3:30.
