The Virginia Ice & Freezing Corporation was established in 1920 during an era when the city of Norfolk was one of the largest producers and distributors of oysters and fish in the country. Located next to several leading seafood processing plants, the facility was among the largest ice and cold storage operations in the city. Virginia Ice & Freezing Corp., which at the time of listing in the registers still operated as a cold storage facility, represents the most intact and best preserved cold storage warehouse in Norfolk.
