June 8: Volunteer Get-Together

If you are an Ice House volunteer, please mark your calendar for this special get-together — our way of saying “thanks” for all you do on behalf of the Ice House. (4:30 to 6 PM)

June 26: Cracker Barrel / Old Stories from Around New London

Join us at the Tracy Memorial Library at 7 pm to reminisce about life and happenings around New London from years past.

The Kidder family ran Kidder Garage on Main Street in New London from the time of the first automobiles until the garage closed in the 1980s and its contents were relocated to the Ice House.

Many stories were heard and told around those gas pumps. This June we will "break the ice" on our Cracker Barrel Series with a collection of old stories from around New London. It promises to be a nice stroll down memory lane.

(7 PM)

July 13: Old Ford Day

Join us from 9-1 at The Ice House Museum for Old Ford Day. Stop by in your own special Model T or Model A. Pitch in to learn how to complete a specific repair or maintenance item on one of our cars. Share experiences and advice unique to these wonderful old cars. Free rides! (9 AM to 1 PM)

October 5: Antique Tractors & One-Lungers

From 9-1 at The Ice House Museum, we’ll be pulling out some of our one-lunger engines to get them running. We'll also have some antique tractors running around the Ice House, so we’ll definitely need some additional expertise to address some of the issues of these wonderful old engines. If you have one, bring it on by and join our “mutual admiration society”! It’s always fun and there’s much to be learned from each other. (9 AM to 1 PM)
