Maine was a leading “Ice Harvester” in the late 1800’s with 90% going to other states and countries.  This program discusses an era from 1870’s to 1920’s when ice was harvested mainly on the Kennebec River. The Electrical Age (1920’s and refrigerators) put Maine’s 2nd largest harvest out of business.
