Watching ice melt – a cool fund-raising event to support the restoration of the historic ice well at Gadsby’s Tavern.
Using 18th-century ice preservation techniques, 6,300 pounds of were loaded into the Gadsby’s Tavern historic ice well for the Ice Melt Contest. Visitors could buy tickets to guess the date on which the Ice Mound would finally disappear, while a web-cam kept vigil.
Throughout the event “treasures” frozen in the ice blocks were displayed on the viewing windows at the site as they melted free. The ice mound lasted 51 days.
