22nd Annual North River Mills / Ice Mountain Day 2017

Each year we celebrate the by-gone days of this 1700s village. Enjoy a relaxing day in this once-bustling, now quiet hamlet. Usual activities include (Double check closer to the event date): Old time music jam on the porch, Folks clogging/buck or flat foot dancing, Interpretive hay-less ride around the hamlet. Historical re-enactors will likely be camping and participating (French and Indian, Civil War, Native American) Rob Wolford demonstrates blacksmithing.  Model A and Model T Fords, Steam engines and antique tractors and The church ladies provide refreshments. The adjacent quiet dirt lane is a nice place for a hike. C.C. Hall has an excellent site with info about the North River Mills was designated a "Historical Landmark". If you have old photos ( people or structures of the village), we would love to scan them. Often old timers come to swap stories of North River Mills, giving the day a homecoming feel.  Ted Kalvitis, the antique tractor guru, and his better half, Stephanie host a Narrow Gallery (corn crib) art show. Docents lead hikes to the cold vents at Ice Mountain (probably early.)
