Did You Know Ice Delivery in Houston

Back In The days

Early cold storage systems in America were located not in kitchens, but underground. A seven-foot pit found at Jamestown is believed to be modeled after an English-style ice pit. There may have been a hut built over the pit to trap cold air and help preserve perishable items like meat, packed in ice and straw for insulation. A more elaborate icehouse was found at the former site of the President's House in Philadelphia. The octagon-shaped pit, built in the 1780s, has a stone lining duce heat loss, and it would have contained ice brought from a nearby body of water. Best Ice in Houston
