The Ice House

In 1972, work began on converting the original ice house into their meeting room. Up to this point, I don't believe this part wasn't used. It was extremely dark and no electricity. You can see there was no glass door or large glass window. You can also see the well house better.


The Ice House

In this photo, you can see the smoke stack at the old saw mill which is where the RV park and walking trail is now. In the left side of the photo, you can barely see the metal building protecting the original spring-fed well. The brick building still stands today. It was part of the original ice house. It is used as a classroom/ meeting room now. This structure is long and goes all the way back to Giles St behind the station. It is used as equipment storage now.  It still has the rails and pullys for moving massive blocks of ice. The white structure at the right of the picture was the "business" side of the ice house. This is where the truck bays are now.

Station Dedication

The current station was built in 1947 and very few minor changes have been made to it.   What you see today would be almost what it looked like back then. Basically, the only changes are paint color & a wall added to divide a room.

The Ice House

Yes, the photo is dark. It was taken in broad daylight and that lighting was as good as it got. This was what you saw until lighting was added and the glass door & window were installed.
