Ice Harvesting at Curran Homestead Village
February 2, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
The Ice Harvest on the Mill Pond will take place February 2 from 10am to 3pm. This year, the ice harvested will be stored in our newly constructe ice house thanks, in part, to a 2017 Narragansett Number One Foundation grant. This public participation event involves cutting cakes of ice from a pond and transporting them via horse drawn bobsled to the ice house. Guests will use vintage tools to cut and shape ice. A warming center will be available with savories and sweets for sale. Blacksmithing demonstrations will enhance the experience.
