Hope everyone enjoyed the Memorial weekend.
Knowlton’s Ice Museum is participating in “Be a Tourist in Your Own Town” this Saturday, June 2nd from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. We are bringing in a craft for the kids, a bake sale for everyone with a sweet tooth and live music from the Pine River Regency Band. The band will be playing from 12:30 to 3:30 pm.
We are looking forward to a visit from YOU!
We will be starting our summer hours this Friday, June 1st. Thursday, Friday and Saturday hours are from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm for the season. We’ll let you know when those hours change. Anyone can schedule a group tour during business hours. Bring your family – bring your friends. We have many displays to see, along with pictures and even a video showing everyone how ice harvesting was done in days gone by – and the importance of it over our Michigan state history.
Come and enjoy our beautiful museum. Learn about how our food was preserved in these hot summer days. It is our area history, it happened here and in the state of Michigan – but is no longer taught in our schools. Bring in the children for a demonstration showing them a piece of the past. It will give them an idea of what their forebears went through. Instead of just plugging in the latest and greatest appliance like they see today – it is a piece of the past that won’t be brought back. It lives on at Knowlton’s Ice Museum.
Come catch a glimpse of how it used to be.
We offer group tours as well. If our times are not convenient for you, give us a call and leave your contact information so someone can get back to you, call (810) 987-5441. We make every effort to accomodate you. If you are a reader of Blue Water Healthy Living, mention you saw this article at the door when checking in. We would like to know that we’re being seen!
I have been the manager of Knowlton’s Ice Museum for almost three years. I have lived in Port Huron all of my life and grew up with the Knowlton family. I have two adult children and two grandchildren. I belong to an antique tractor club in Croswell, MI where I’ve shown my 1949 8n Ford tractor in local parades. I love visiting the St. Clair river with my little dog and a good book for the afternoon. Quilting is a passion when I have them time. I truly enjoy sharing the ice harvesting history in our area; it brings back memories for so many people.
