Ice Harvest offers time to chill out


In the Hanford House, which recreates home life in the 1920s, interpreters will cook candy on a woodstove. There also will be screenings of films showing ice harvest from the 1930s. In addition to warming up with a cup of hot soup, visitors can gather by bonfires.

Callahan said that previous years’ events have attracted more than 1,000 people. 

“By February, people are really ready to get out and enjoy a day of winter fun. We call Ice Harvest our coolest tradition,” she said. 

Hanford Mills is at 51 County Highway 12. For information, visit or call 278-5744.
