The People's Ice and Storage Company was opened in 1923, across Dough's Creek from downtown Manteo, and was referred to as Ice Plant Island. A board of directors for the plant was established on August 30, 1923. Officers included M. L. Daniels; chairman protem, C. S. Meekins; secretary protem, E. H. Peel; president, E. F. Wise; vice-president, and W. B. Fearing; treasurer. Other memebers of the board of directors included T. A. Dough, G. L. Midgett, M. K. Fearing, and Joe Tom Daniels. The plant's first engineer was M. A. Daniels, who resigned his post in 1924, with the plans of naming Edward S. Pugh of Wanchese, to fill his position. The company was most likely foreclosed on between 1931-1932. After being sold and resold under foreclosure proceedings for more than a year, it was purchased at a final sale by E. F. Wise and his brother Clarence E. Wise, who made plans to refurbish the plant with new machinery. The plant's rehabillitation took approximately 60 days and had the capacity to process 15 tons of ice daily. The site of the People's Ice and Storage Company is now home to the Outer Banks History Center and Roanoke Island Festival Park.
