January 1st, 1896 marked the grand opening of the nation’s most impressive structure... The Crystal Palace!

 

In addition to steel girders and massive amounts of lumber, the finished product was made from 5,000 tons of ice.  Octagonal pillars of ice, 5 feet in diameter were set 15 feet apart alongside a skating rink.  Access to the rink was via sparkling and glistening stairway of ice... The rink itself was 190 feet long and 80 feet wide.

 

Entertainment included a dining room, gaming rooms, curling alleys and countless concessions.

 

Join us at the Golden Burro for the whole amazing story and have one of our celebration drinks in honor of this amazing feat!
