"Tragedy at the Ice House"

The crystal-clear water of our spring-fed lake produced some of the finest ice in northern Illinois.  During the winter months, ice was cut from the lake and stored in large ice houses.

Each winter, the ice harvest at Crystal Lake employed hundreds of local men.  These men risked their lives by using dangerous tools and equipment in sub-zero temperatures on the frozen lake.  Many accidents occurred--some more serious than others.

Join us as we re-create one such tragic accident.  Become part of the story as you move through the Colonel Palmer House and meet with early 20th century residents as they reveal the tragic story.

Tickets: $8.00 Adults / $5.00 Seniors (65+) / $5.00 Children (under 12) 

The performances are scheduled to start every 15 minutes from 6PM-8PM both evenings.  Each performances lasts about 45 minutes.  Reservations are required!!

This will be our fourth annual "Dearly Departed".  Each year has been a sell-out!  So get your tickets early!
