Historical Society seeks ice items

NORTH ELBA- The Lake Placid-North Elba Historical Society is installing a new exhibit this spring titled "ICE!"

There are a number of objects and photographs not currently in the collection that are needed to tell a comprehensive and exciting ICE story. The following is a list of needs for the exhibit:

Photos include luge and skeleton (non-Olympic), logging, ice jams, ice storm, potholes, building materials transported over ice, full structures transported over ice, modern motorized vehicles used on ice and Mill Pond skating images from the 1920s

Objects include old fashioned non-electric ice box, long-handled ice tools, ice fishing equipment, sulky raced on ice or ice racing cutter.

All items should be at the historical society by April 8 but the sooner the better. If you need help bringing larger items to the museum please call Jennifer at 523-2529 or email at thehistorymuseum@verizon.net.
