The Independence Day Celebration on July 4, 10 am – 5 pm, features old-fashioned fun, with a fishing derby, frog-jumping contests, steam-power demonstrations, Mill tours, and free samples of ice cream made on a steam-powered churn, chilled with ice cut from the Mill Pond at February’s Ice Harvest Festival. Kids 12 and under, Museum Members, and active duty military and their families, receive free admission.
