Northporters have had to deal with winters that would make these frigid times look like a tropical jungle. The 1930s and early 1900s had some of the most chilly winters in the area's recent history.
Some made the best of it and landed planes or drove trucks across frozen Northport Harbor-- some even relocated their entire house.
According to Northport Historical Society President Steven King, one man even moved his home by horse from Centerport to Bayview Avenue in the 1850s. The same man who later built the First Presbyterian Church on Main Street--Charles Sammis--helped secure the house in place.
"Houses were simpler then because you didn't have plumbing or electrical. You had a chimney to deal with, but that was about it," said King. "The rest was just sticks."
Bet you wouldn't try that now. Enjoy these photos and share any memories you might have of Northport winters in the comment section below.
