Wisconsin Stories: Frozen Asset

Special | 29m 2s

Wisconsin is a land formed by ice. Intrepid Wisconsinites harvested it, used it to freeze and cool food, to make the state's beer famous, to keep homes cool, to play on, to make money. Wisconsin wouldn't be what it is today without ice. Local historians talk about their remembrances of ice men, ice harvesting and ice boxes.
