Our display of ice harvesting tools is growing.

Before mechanical refrigeration was invented, business and railroads
depended on winter ice harvested from local ponds. The ice was cut into
blocks and stored in well insulated buildings for use during the
summer. For example : The Bordens milk plant in Hopewell Junction had
an ice house that held 900 tons of ice blocks which would last though
the summer.

Our display is not complete yet. We would like to add more tools. Here
is a list of what we do not have yet.

Ice ax, ice shaver, ice adze, ice measuring iron, ice pickeroon, small
ice picks, splitting fork, hand plow, ice chipper, ice saw, spring
scale, splitting awl.

If you have any of these items we would love to add them to our
display. If you know of any that are available. let us know or stop
around to the Depot on a Saturday. or Sunday.
