An old industry returns as a family event at Hanford Mills

The Hanford Mills Museum in East Meredith presents its annual Ice Harvest Festival. It’s an interactive event showing how important this “winter crop” was, and how it was done.  There are lots of other activities going on at Hanford Mills as well.  The best part is that the ice harvested this weekend is stored until July, when it is used to make ice cream.
