While doing a bit of research on the Icehouse Canyon area for my last write-up, I stumbled upon the personal web site of a physics and engineering professor at Mount San Antonio College. He owns one of the cabins in Icehouse Canyon, and apparently they’ve got themselves something of a historical society in that canyon.
The professor has two interesting posts, one small capsule history of the Canyon itself, and a great post on the Chapman Ice House Canyon Resort and Lodge, with some great scanned images from another cabin-owner.
Not necessary to hike and enjoy the canyon, but if you’re a history nerd like me, you’ll gain a whole new level of appreciation for Icehouse.
