Shown here is the front of a stock certificate issued by the Beavertown Electric Company in 1908, to Ira Haines. While they supplied energy for only part of each day, it was an amazing step forward in our town’s progress. This privately held corporation was the principal reason why Beavertown sought to become a Borough in 1914.

Your editor has an ice house that could be used in a day or so if needed, to store and keep ice. In it are ice tongs, ice saw, and other ice processing paraphernalia.
We used it as an ice house until 1948.
It has a concrete bottom with a sloped floor with a drain, and a frame top, with proper doors to put the ice in and take it out.
At present, various other items are stored in this building, but they could be removed, and it would be ready for sawdust covered ice slabs immediately.
