Heather: Where did you get the ice?

Audrey: We had a big square building called the ice house. It was filled with something like saw dust. Grandpa would go to Carr’s Pond with horses and wagon. The horses could walk on the ice pond. Grandpa would cut squares of ice out. He would cut as large a square as could be cut and bring ice back to the ice house and throw it in (to store the ice). Neighbors would come down because they needed ice.
