Dartmouth in Wintertime is a new temporary exhibit on the main level of Evergreen. It explores events and activities that took place in Dartmouth during the colder months of the past. This includes snapshots of historically frigid weather, tools that were used in Dartmouth’s once booming Ice-Cutting Industry, and highlights a small sample of the museum’s extensive ice skate collection, including some of the awards that were won by local skaters. The exhibit will be up until March 31.
