ORRINGTON The Curran Homestead Living History Farm and Museum is postponing the Harvest of Diamonds Ice-Cutting Event on Field's Pond in Orrington from Saturday, Feb. 6, to Sunday, March 6 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Safety and weather conditions were major factors in the re-scheduling.

Along with experiencing real and historic ice-cutting using vintage tools from the Curran Farm's collections, the March 6 event will feature the "maiden voyage" of the re-wooded Curran Museum's historic horse-drawn bobsled, which has been part of a collaborative agreement with 19th century Willowbrook Museum in Newfield, Maine. Robert Schmick, Willowbrook Village's museum director, is a former Director of the Curran Homestead Living History Farm and Museum in Orrington.
