Former White House Ice House c. 1902

By the late nineteenth century the former ice house, so important to Jefferson, had evolved into a servants' dining room and still later into an office and then the West Garden room. This photograph from 1902 shows the original arch that spanned the protruding round ice house that was first enclosed in wood along with the original well.
