Seokbinggo Ice House was the underground storehouse for Banwolseong Fortress, built during the reign of King Yeongju in the Joseon dynasty. It was moved 100 metres and rebuilt in 1741, during the reign of King Yeongjo.

It is 19m long and 5.45m high, and the domed roof and walls consist of about one thousand stones. The floor is slanted and fluted to facilitate the flow of melting ice.

The ice house is the only intact building that survives from Banwolseong Fortress.
