I only live maybe 6 or 7 miles from there. Our house and the 3 or 4 on this side of the road were originally owned by the ice workers or owners. Local guy told me the one house next to mine was a boarding house for the workers and was twice its size before being remodeled. You'll see those old ice tongs hung up on the sides of garages for show. I was up there maybe 2007 or 2008. Took the Husky pup we had, figured she would love being out on the ice. They canceled it the usual weekend because it was too warm and the ice was too thin. Found this old pdf file describing some of this ice cutting. http://www.monroepl.org/The%20Natural%2 ... rvests.pdf
One weird thing up here, fill the bathtub with water, it is light blue. I can't say that ever happened when i was on a municipal water supply.

Another ice source appeared along the Wilkes-Barre and
t+hatocn line i n 1895, whon tho l'ocono S p r i n ~W ater I c o Cornpuny
of Easton had the Tunkhannock Creek dammed t o create Lake Naomi.
Ice houses b u i l t on the shore held 60,000 tons of ice. The
monolithic ice t r u s t , the American Ice Company, leased the plant
in: l9OO and made plans to expand the f a c i l i t i e s . In ordinary
winters, Lake Naomi could be expected t o yield between 400,000
and j00,000 tons of good ice. Plans were made to add a connection
to the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western. The company placed
contracts for two hundred r e f r i g e r a t o r cars t o carry ice t o New
Jersey and Pennsylvania c i t i e s . The Pocono Pines Ice Company of
Zastori succeeded the Pocono Spring Water Ice Company a f t e r purchasing
t h e i r property at a s h e r i f f ' s sale. The icehouses at
Lake Naorni burned down i n 1914, a f t e r being struck by lightning


I look out the bathroom window and overlook lake naomi every morning as well as the ice house resturant.

boy I bet those workers could suggest some good boots, made in america!!!! to wear.... ;)
