Visitor Information

Trovera is located in the historic Ice House in Pittsburgh’s Lawrenceville, neighborhood.  Located a few blocks away from Lawrenceville's bustling Butler St. business district, the Ice House listed on National Register of Historic Places, was built primarily in 1907 as Factory No. 2 of the Consolidated Ice Company. It was later purchased by the Chautauqua Ice Company, which at the time also owned the Strip District building that is now the Heinz History Center. By century's end, not much was left in the building of the original ice manufacturing process. But the owners actually made ice here, rather than shipping ice down river from upstate New York and storing it for sale, as Chautauqua did in the Strip District. Old maps show gigantic freezing tanks, storage areas and wagon sheds on this site. The courtyard was the loading area, first for wagons and then for trucks. Part of the two-story building on the south side of the courtyard was the horse stable, horse drawn wagons being a familiar sight in many Pittsburgh neighborhoods into the 1920s. The extremely high ceilings and thick walls are also evocative of the building's former life. Ice was made here until approximately 1950.
