Have you drove past the Icehouse Museum in Downtown Cedar Falls and wondered about the story behind that amazing, round building?  Please join the Friends of the UNI Museum for the second presentation of their 2019 Speaker Series, "History in Our Own Backyard". On October 26th at 1:00 p.m., Carrie Eilderts, Executive Director of the Cedar Falls Historical Society, will share stories of three CFHS venues in Downtown Cedar Falls, including the Ice House Museum, Victorian Home and Carriage House, and Little Red Schoolhouse. Learn about the history of these beautiful and interesting places, as well as their exhibits and programs. She will also share future plans of the Historical Society.
