    Default Seaside Heights Ice House

    Hi. When I was a kid there was an ice house in Seaside. It was definitely there in the late sixties but I can't say when it was taken down.

    I'm curious and can't find any info about it. Probably because I know next to nothing...making it hard to research.

    Does anyone remember this place and can tell me anything about it? It was a huge building and it must have been quite old when I last saw it.

    It may have been torn down and replaced by the old water slide park, which is also now gone. I do not know if these were both on the same property or two different locations.

    Does anyone know what the place was called?
    Anything about its history?
    What blocks it was on, i.e. what streets the building was surrounded by?
    When was it torn down?

    Thanks if you can help.

    The cold storage plant was located on Central ave and Sherman avenue. This was in the 60's,I am not certain when the bldg was taken down. Central avenue was not the main drag of seaside, although it was wider than the boulevard. I remember the bldg well, I think it was the largest bldg in the town at the time.In fact I think it may have closed in the sixties, because there never seem to be too much activity around the bldg from what I remember, I was just a kid in the 60.s I left there just before turning 12 years old.Now the bar was called the Chatterbox. The entrance was right to the boardwalk.Unfortunately when I lived in Seaside, I was well under 21 so I never did get to see top entertainment there when it was a regular gig for top bands. In fact the remember seeing on the billboard one time when I was a kid that the Beau Brummels were going to be there. I am sure now that I think about it alot of the bands from the fifties most likely played there.

    Seaside Heights Boardwalk is the home to The Casino Pier and Fun-town Pier amusement parks. This boardwalk is the oldest amusement park in California.

    Seaside Heights Beaches are all the public destination and are open throughout the summer season. Public access can be found almost in the off season and beach entry is free during the off-season October-May as well.

    Warren James - so where did you copy and past this from? Considering that obviously you know nothing about Seaside Heights since you state that Seaside Heights is the oldest amusement park in California, when it is located in New Jersey now does this have anything to do with the topic of the thread which is about the Ice House in Seaside Heights.. I did remove your forced signature links you added in at the end of your posts. From the history of what you post, it is obvious that you just copy and past from other sites, in order to get your links in here.
    New Jersey is the only state honored by two resorts at Walt Disney World. The Beach Club Resort, modeled after Historic Cape May and The Boardwalk Resort, after Atlantic City. If the Jersey Shore is good enough for Walt Disney to recreate, isn't the REAL Jersey Shore even better for you and your family?
