The Ice House 

The Ice House served the residents of Batsto Mansion as a way to keep food cold during the warm seasons. Slabs of ice were cut from Batsto Lake with huge saws, then stored in the Ice House, which is dug out approximately 20 feet below ground level. Packed with sawdust, the ice kept meat, butter and other dairy products cool year-round.
