Learn how to make homemade ice cream the old fashioned way with a hand-crank ice cream maker on Saturday, August 13th at 10:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.

This demonstration will show how ice and salt creates a brine that can reduce the temperature to below freezing, and cranking the handle for 30 minutes can fluff this frozen treat made famous by Dolly Madison after her return from France. A historic recipe will be distributed to those in attendance. Free!

At noon there will be a family tour with hands-on activities for children. To learn more about this and other free events at Peirce Mill visit our new website .

Peirce Mill demonstrates its 19th century grist mill every second and fourth Saturday of the month from April through October from 11am to 2pm. The mill and visitors’ center are also open on these days from 10am-4pm.
