Ice - A Curse on the One Hand, A Luxury on the Other

'The ice house was a fixture on many farms and in towns. Originally, they were dug into the side of a hill, as would be a root cellar, lined with thick oak or hickory planks for insulation, and well covered. At the turn of the last century, Gradyville boasted four ice houses. . . There were sources of ice and house to store it in at Neatsville, Cane Valley, Montpelier, Crocus, Glensfork, and many other points in the county . . . ' - MIKE WATSON

Kentucky Color - Ice & Frost Flowers

Click on headline for complete essay/poem, with photo(s), link(s)

Kentucky Division or Forestry
