Ice House Once Located In Scottsville, Allen County
Dear Editor:
I am looking for anything related to the Ice House in Scottsville, Allen County, Kentucky, such as photos, ice picks, and ice cards.
Does anyone have a story about the ice delivery man John Robert Elmore, aka Bob Elmore? He was my great-grandfather.
I have been told the Wagon Wheel is located where the Ice House once stood in Scottsville. I was also told it was near the old depot.
