Waterford Ice House The Ice House was located on the shores of the Fox River. Frozen river water was sawed and then stored in the icehouse, chunks of ice separated by saw dust and later sold to people who had ice boxes, and needed to cool their food. This historically significant stone icehouse was abandoned and razed. "Nothing on earth Is more gentle and yielding than water, Yet nothing is stronger. When it confronts a wall of stone, Gentleness overcomes hardness: The power of water prevails." SOUTHEAST TELEPHONE
