Ever wonder while driving through the latest snow event, how people did this 100 years ago?

That will be the topic of a free round-table discussion, Through the Snow: Horse-Drawn Winter Transportation, at 1 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 27, at the Owls Head Transportation Museum.

The discussion will be led by presenters Ursula Baier, Greg Cuffey, John Sowles and Leslie Peters from the Skyline Farm Carriage & Sleigh Museum in North Yarmouth. Topics include identifying American sleighs — several of which are currently on display in the museum — common and uncommon animals used, dealing with winter road conditions, and sleighing accouterments such as apparel, blankets, bells, heaters, knockers and runners. Several items will be on display during the presentation. Questions will be welcome throughout the discussion.

Through the Snow is the fourth in a series of six Winter Education programs offered by the Owls Head Transportation Museum. All programs begin at 1 p.m. and are free. All programs are general seating.

Remaining Winter Education programs at the Owls Head Transportation Museum are:

• March 13: Carts & Carriages, Curricles & Cabs: The Art and Style of American Horse Drawn Vehicles. Author and curatorial chair for the Carriage Museum of America, Ken Wheeling, will provide an overview of horse-drawn vehicles in America.

• April 3: Looking Astern: An Artist’s View of Maine’s Historic Working Waterfronts. Local artist Loretta Krupinski will present from her new book of the same title. Her work represents “arrested moments in time from 1850 to 1940 along Maine’s working waterfronts.”
