Local Historical Tidbits

 

What are these items and how are they related? Not sure? In this sweltering time of year, it is always refreshing to think about ice. The top artifact is an ice cleat that would attach to your boots if you were one of the men who harvested ice on Mohawk Lake in Glendale or Echo Lake in Interlaken. The smaller item was used to shave ice off of a cake of ice.

“The Edward’s¬†house was situated on Main Street in town and served as the residence of Rev. Jonathan Edwards from 1751 to 1758. It later became a school for boys run by Ferdinand Hoffmann and Jared Reid from 1855-1873. In 1900 the building was demolished and parts of the house were made into souvenirs visitors could purchase in order to own a small bit of town history.
