New Building!
This has been an exciting year for the Thompson Ice House, as along with continued maintenance of the old buildings and equipment, a new building has appeared on site! After careful research and consultation, the building was constructed and completed just in time for the annual ice harvest. The new building will house exhibits, including old tools and items for sale, as well as a video presentation about ice harvesting.
