About

Ice Harvest Museum in East Bradford Township, PA

This is a new ice harvesting museum by the former owner of the Brandywine Ice Company, Peter Stack. It is in a barn erected in the 1834 by William Ingram, who also built Girard College. For a time the barn was Brandywine Hall for Smedley Darlington's School for Young Ladies. (Most of the information I posted is from the 1936-2012 Chester County Day flyer by the Chester County Day Committee. Some of it I found on the Web.)
