Built in 1912 the Salisbury Ice & Fuel Company was just as an important community gathering spot like the post office or general store would have been.
At one time up to 21 trucks delivered ice and fuel, such as coal and heating oils, to homes and industrial plants. In 1933, after prohibition ended, Salisbury Ice & Fuel Co. began distributing Lion Beer.
As with many ice and fuel companies technology like refrigeration helped push these businesses aside and by the 1960’s business had declined to the point of closure. In 1974 most of the building was demolished, all that remains is the main brick building and coal siding structure, once connected directly to the Southern Railway mainline, across the street from the brick building.
Open by Appointment Historic Salisbury Foundation has decided to sustain this property through adaptive re-use, and the building is now open by appointment as the Architectural Salvage Warehouse.
