Winter Work & Play at Old Sturbridge Village

Oops. This event is over, but we have plenty of more great events coming up on our calendar.

  • January 24, 2015 - January 25, 2015
  • Location: Old Sturbridge Village

Visitors to Old Sturbridge Village can try their hands at dipping a year's worth of candles and "harvesting" ice the old fashioned way with Village historians and ice expert Dennis Picard. Gathering at the OSV Millpond, guests can experience ice cutting just as it was done in the days before modern refrigeration, when Boston's "Ice King" Frederic Tudor made a fortune exporting New England ice all over the world (weather conditions permitting). Details: www.osv.org

Watch a 2 minute ice harvesting video.
