Crystal Ice House in Trenton sells

One of the few remaining historic buildings in Trenton sold on Friday, April 6. The Crystal Ice House was purchased by R.E.A.C.H. aka Real Estate Acquisition for Children, LLC. for $280,000. The purchase was from current owners Suwannee Valley Quilt Shoppe LLC, Paul and Stephanie Metts.
The Metts purchased the 1925 ice house and cold storage building and remodeled the building in 2010. Since that time the Crystal Ice House has been home to several businesses including a cross stitch shop, antique business, hair salon, machine quilting business and a tea room. The Metts listed the property with United Country Real Estate Listing Agent Stephanie Barron in July of 2017 and a contract for the purchase was signed in the fall.
The nearly 6,000 sq. ft, building is located at 111 NW 4th Avenue in Trenton, which is next door to the Suwannee Valley Quilt Shoppe and across the street from the railroad depot.
Steve Pennypacker, the CEO of R.E.A.C.H. said, “We are renovating the inside and plan to preserve the character of the building inside and outside.” The remodeling of the space will be to fit the needs of the Partnership for Strong Families who will be leasing the building.
Devereux Florida’s case managers and supervisors who work with Partnership for Strong Families and serve the families in Gilchrist, Levy and Dixie Counties will be moving into the building by August. Those case workers offices are currently located at the Wilson Building located at 930 South Main Street in Trenton.
Patty Carroll, Director of Community Relations and Recruitment at Partnership for Strong Families said, “Staff is really excited about the move to the charming Crystal Ice House.” She said that everyone is pleased to be moving to the downtown location.
