Ice was harvested on local lakes from 1896 thru the 1940s. Vast icehouses insulated with sawdust at Naomi Lake, Pocono Lake, Stillwater Lake, Anglewood lake and Brady's Lake kept tons of ice frozen through summer. Blocks of ice were shipped by rail to major cities and points south. Jobs such as Chunk Boy and Scraper were among those offered by the industry until electric refrigeration ended the era.
