Just on the east side of the bridge on the hill is a very large square cut out in the rocks that was once was roofed and used to store ice cut from the creek, delivered and sold in the summer for the old iceboxes.

(EDITOR’S NOTE) Mike, great info about the ice house. Alan, yes, you are correct. Photo #9 is actually looking southward as the creek narrows. Thanks. Jeff

As a child, I remember walking southward down a trail on the oposite side of the bridge from the mill. That was back in the 60s. I believe that section is now private property.

I spent my summers growing up in Rock Falls Park in the 50’s and 60’s. Any sites that show older pictures and history you can send me to would be appreciated.

I’m so excited to see these vintage images, while working on my Kennedy family genealogy. I’ll put a link on Ancestry so other descendants can come see it here too.
