A cylindrical stone structure built by Stephen B. Elkins, the ice house stored the family's ice supply when they were in residence at Halliehurst during the summer months. The circular stone structure is a utilitarian storage building, but done in the same imaginative style as Halliehurst. There is a long, shingled, overhanging roof with a picturesque cupola venting the roof. A large square bin projects from the wall on ground level, and a pair of stone steps descends to the lower level, where there is an entrance door.
In 1969, the structure was refurbished and has since been used as a coffee house/pub for college events.
