1. The Ice House Marker
Inscription. This site stared as a Meat Market in 1906, then became the Ice House.

Ice was originally brought down from the "ice pond" in the hills and stored at the Ice House. Later it was manufactured here at the Ice Plant in 300 pound blocks that were scored, cut and distributed to local ice boxes. This was also the site of a soda bottling plant. The Leak, Mason and Turner soda waters bottled here were used at many of the local resorts.

This was the first concrete building in Upper Lake and survived the fire of 1924.
