You could point to Orange's freezing winter weather for the reason we have plenty of cold-themed street names.
After all there's Frost Street, Icely Road, Winter Street (covered in a previous article) and even the differently-spelt Hale Street. But none of them have anything to do with the weather.
The street takes its names from Robert Frost, the owner of Campdale (now Kinross PLC), where he built a homestead a few years before his dramatic death.
The Orange and District Historical Society website's collections page says Mr Frost was a leading citizen in late 1800s Orange.
"He apparently arrived in the early days of Blackmans Swamp village, and was part of its development into the township of Orange to set up a butchering establishment. By careful investment he was able to acquire the Wentworth Estate in Lucknow which proved to be one of the most profitable goldfields in Australia," it said.
In 1888 he died after being thrown from his horse near his property but what happened next made news around the nation.
One report, in The Riverine Herald in Echuca, said on the day after the death, Mr Frost's daughter Bridget, 15, upon seeing her father's corpse "dropped dead from the shock. The circumstance has cast quite a gloom over the town."
It is understood she had an asthma attack and they were buried in the Orange Cemetery the same day.
Architect and builder John Hale designed several notable buildings in Orange including Strathroy, Buena Vista, Llanello, Bowen Terrace and Orange's first Post Office, the ODHS has reported.
Mr Hale also built Glenroi House for Henry Thomas Bowen, the owner of the Bowen Terrace on Bathurst Road. Other sites include the Centrepoint building in 1876 and the Wesley Uniting Church in Anson Street in 1863.
Historian Ross Maroney said it is named after the mining settlement of Icely, near Lewis Ponds, which was named after colonial landholder, stockbreeder and politician Thomas Iceley of Coombing Park at Carcoar.
Wikipedia reports Mr Icely (1797-1874) was the beneficiary of large land grants and he bought more, the largest was Coombing Park.
The village of Mandurama was established in 1876 to support the property.
