Malone Skating Rink

From the 1868 Malone City Directory:

From the collection of the Franklin County Historical & Museum Society

From Seaver (1918), page 435:
"In 1867 and for a few years immediately following ice skating was as much a craze as roller skating became forty years later.  An ice rink was built on Catherine street in 1867 by Jerome and Russell Wentworth, Benj. Webster and L.R. Townsend, and did a great business."
