Details:

Hey homeschool families! We invite you to discover the cool history of ice harvesting. Learn how ice harvested from this region’s lakes kept food cold before the invention of refrigeration. This program includes demonstrations of ice harvesting, a chance to try your hands with the tools of the ice trade, and then warm up in the classroom while discussing the ice man and home ice deliveries. Students will learn an appreciation of a forgotten aspect of the region’s history and how our geography contributed to the growth of cities. Tours begin every half hour and are mostly outdoors. Please dress for the weather.

Fun for all ages!
