Adirondack Attic: how they cut the ice for the frozen palace

Listen to this story
We continue our series, the Adirondack Attic, with Andy Flynn. You may know Andy from his series of Adirondack Attic books on local history. He uses the objects people make, use and leave behind to tell stories about the life and times of the region. NCPR is collaborating with Andy and his sources at the Adirondack Museum and other historical associations and museums in the region to bring these stories to air.

Today, Andy Flynn visits the ice palace in Saranac Lake for a conversation with historian and author Caperton Tissot about cutting ice blocks for the palace and using an antique ice saw.
