ICEHOUSE AMPHITHEATER HISTORY

The Town of Lexington’s Icehouse Amphitheater sits on property that was originally part of a land grant.  Before the Civil War, a shoe shop occupied the site. The land later housed a cotton warehouse, fertilizer and coal sales company. An ice plant was opened on the property in 1928 where 300 pound ice blocks were made and cut down to 50 pound blocks to fit in residential iceboxes.

The plant was purchased by Frank Havird in 1970 and he added a propane distributorship. Paul and Eddie Havird owned and operated Palmetto Propane on the site until 2012. The Town of Lexington purchased the property to create an amphitheater as part of the Town’s Vision Plan to revitalize downtown and provide quality of life to our citizens.
