Crystal Portraits: Norfolk In The Great Ice Storm of 1898


Norfolk Historical Society

The Great Ice Storm of 1898 hit Northwest Connecticut on February 20 – 22nd.  Marie Kendall, Norfolk’s intrepid 19th century photographer of the day, spent the week following the storm photographing the landscape in the village and beyond.  The Norfolk Historical Museum, in conjunction with Winter WIN, will be showing a short film highlighting these amazing photographs. A second exhibit, “Stuck Indoors,” will showcase some of the museum’s collection of children’s toys, including the magnificent Coffin Family Dollhouse. The museum will be open Feb. 23 & 24th with extended hours for WIN weekend: Saturday 10:00 to 4:00 and Sunday 12:00 to 4:00.
