In his latest report for “Barrington Uncovered”, 365BarringtonTV’s Alex Gaul takes us on a video tour with a sampling of the shops and a taste of the history only found inside Barrington’s Ice House Mall.

To help you do some “window shopping” before your Ice House Halloween shopping excursion, we’ve been busy taking photos of the latest merchandise spotted around the mall.  We love the winter boots and Knitwits children’s hats on display at Tootsies, soaps at Acacia Organics and fall fashions found at Savvy Spirit!

And for all of you history buffs, here’s yet another reason to visit Barrington’s Ice House Mall.  An exhibit is now underway at the Ice House featuring vintage photos and facts about the evolution of Barrington’s historic train-line property, which was built in 1904. Originally the Bowman Dairy and then the Jefferson Suburban Ice Company, the Ice House’s story speaks volumes about Barrington’s history.  You’ll find the Bowman Dairy exhibit at the Ice House Mall across from Acacia Organics.  It’s open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
