OU students dig to unearth ice house

Oakland University students carefully marked off a grid for an
archaeological dig geared to uncover what is left of an ice house
researchers believe was used in the 1800s on the estate of former
Michigan Gov. Moses Wisner.

OU Professor Richard Stamps is

rear of the Wisner mansion, which is now part of the Pine Grove Museum

what appears to be such a structure in the background, Stamps reasons
what is left of the building is under the herb garden located between
the restored smoke and out houses.
