Craft Show coming to Knowlton’s Ice Museum

By Vicki Smith

Knowlton’s Ice Museum of North American will be participating once again in the be a tourist in your own town, Saturday, June 1st in Port Huron, MI.

For this year’s annual event, we’re trying something new. The kids will be showing off their artistic abilities by drawing with chalk on the sidewalk. There will also be a craft show located inside with different talented craft items for purchase. Vendors have flocked! Tables are nearly filled already. There will be lots to come out and see.

Patrons who visit Knowlton’s are usually very surprised when they come inside and see just how big our art museum actually is. With over 10,000 square feet and 6,000 + ice tools and the like on display, it’s quite a site to see. Just recently we added an old ice implement that’s sure to be a favorite by visitors.

Ice Harvesting is history many people know very little about. Many young people who visit are curious, just how exactly did they keep food fresh? It is my opinion that children should be made aware of this time in history and I’m proud to welcome those who are interested in learning more.

We offer tours of 10+ or more. Call us and see for yourself all that Knowlton’s Ice Museum of North America has to offer.

As of June 1st, we’ll be open 3 days a week, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM.

Please call and leave a message including where you can be reached for more information on private tours. (810) 987-5441.

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 the time. I truly enjoy sharing the ice harvesting history in our area; it brings back memories for so many people.
