By establishing the Antique Ice Tool Museum, we strive to educate and inform the public about the natural ice trade and to preserve the history of an industry that forever changed the way we live.

Welcome to the Antique Ice Tool Museum! 

The museum is housed in a completely renovated 1834 stone bank barn.  Inside you will discover the fascinating history behind the natural ice trade.

Step back in time as you walk in the footsteps of the iceman.  Follow history from the harvest to the delivery of ice and learn about the rise and eventual decline of an industry that had a profound effect on the way we live.

This one of a kind museum is dedicated to the preservation of the natural ice trade and was founded by the Stack Family in 2009.  The museum houses the largest private collection of antique ice tools and memorabilia in the United States.
