Ice storage during the Japanese occupation period, proving the history of storing ice from ancient time to present time.



Even at a first glance, the square building proves it stood for long years. No decorations are found in this building which concludes that it was made only for functional purpose. Cheorwon ice storage was built by a Japanese man that owned a restaurant, for private purposes. It states that he collected ice from Sanmyeongho Lake during winter, and sold to each establishment. It was destroyed during the Korean War and only the rubbles of the wall remains today. Through this building you can see the development of ancient ice storage to present refrigerator. May 27, 2002 Cheorwon ice storage was registered as Modern Cultural Heritage Cultural Property No. 24 and is being managed.
