This article about harvesting ice from Silver Lake was written in 1936 by William R. Lodge, grandson of George H. Lodge, an early settler of Munroe Falls. William's father, Ralph H. Lodge, purchased the lake in 1874 and later bought 35 acres of surrounding land and opened Silver Lake park in 1876. (A photograph of Ralph H. Lodge is included on page 1 of this issue.) The article describes the methods and importance of ice fishing.
