The ice house is now located in the Great Hall after the Highlands Ranch Metro District finished a big renovation in June 2012. Prior to finishing the Great Hall, the ice house was located on the back side of the Manison in an outdoor courtyard between the house and six car garage. Delivery trucks would bring grocies right up to the ice house. Its called the ice house because they would put ice in there to keep the groceries cold, like a refrigerator. Trucks or wagons could pull right up and load everything through this big door.
