Over the River and Through the Wood: An Uncommonly Cold Season

Tuesday, Mar 11 10:00a to 3:00p
Gore Place Waltham, MA

The year 1816 was known as "The Year Without a Summer" and "Eighteen-Hundred-and-Froze-to-Death". It was the year that Christopher Gore installed one of the first central heating systems in America in his home in Waltham. Featuring a recently restored sleigh along with period winter clothing and the farm journal of Jacob Farwell, this exhibit describes some of the ways people coped with extreme winter conditions in the early 19th century.
