OH - Portsmouth Ice House

I received an informative e-mail last night about this place. I assumed a brewery as it resembled other structures that were in the area and was in the Brewery district.

The e-mail states it was an ice house:

The old jail I had covered previously but I need to add the photos. It is a stone structure with some remainants of the past. The old brewery that he mentions that has the micro-brewery serves good food (mmmmm).

I will update the pages with more information as I get them in!

Hm... Any way to access the tunnels from the old brewery at this point? It might be an interesting day trip if we could. Lunch and exploration together. What do you think?
