Carrollton: Ask an Expert: Ice

June 21, 2016 - 11:00am to 12:00pm

Before electricity was available to power modern freezers and refrigerators, homes had “ice boxes”. But where did the Perrys and their neighbors get it and how was it made? Join us for a presentation by a local ice production and delivery service, and learn all about making ice, then and now. See our antique ice box and examine a real 50-pound block of ice while enjoying a tall glass of lemonade. Registration is require by 6/19.
