Description

The former building of the Southern Utilities Company, located at 112 South Park Avenue in Sanford, Florida, in 2011. When the building first opened in 1924, it operated as an ice house. Ice houses provided blocks of ice for home ice boxes and allowed agricultural businesses to transport their fruits and vegetables in refrigerated boxcars. Ice houses also provided cold storage for produce, meat, and other food goods for better food preservation. The most recent business that took over the building is a bar known as the Wet Spot.
