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."
