The October 28, 1875 Dubuque Herald described the new ice house Anton HEEB had constructed. Measuring 53 x 63 feet, the building used 250,000 brick including enough to make the walls from 20-24 inches thick. The principal uses for the building were the storage of ice with "apartments" for hops and malt. A vault under the ice chamber was vented with flues to draw off the warm air. (1)
The 1886-87 Dubuque City Directory listed the corner of Couler and Eagle Point.
