Description

Later renamed to the Walker Coal and Ice Company, this company was the only company to commercially operate at Salisbury Pond in Institute Park. Walker Ice Company acquired multiple other local ice companies over the years, and was eventually acquired by The New England Consolidated Ice Company, a large ice trust. The Walker Ice Company operated at Salisbury Pond from 1870 – July 4, 1901, ending their operation after their ice house burned down.
