Donate to the Ice House Plaza Project

A Joint Project of the Sausalito Foundation and the Sausalito Historical Society

Details of the Ice House Project Developed by SWA

The Ice History Museum was the brainchild of beloved historian and cartoonist, Phil Frank.  Following Phil’s death in 2007, Bea Seidler of the Sausalito Foundation took up the cause of building the adjacent Ice House Plaza that Phil had always envisioned. When Bea passed away in 2014, the Sausalito Historical Society stepped in to help the Foundation to complete the project.
