In the early 1950s, the newly formed Atlanta Figure Skating Club was already a U.S. Figure Skating member, but its growing number of members were practicing in a wrestling arena garage.
Seeing the need for a rink, the Nicol brothers built The Igloo on Roswell Road in Buckhead. For several years, the ice surface was where the club practiced and Atlantans took to the ice to learn to skate. Atlanta once had several rinks inside the city, including one at Colony Square, although none of them still exist.
Eventually, The Igloo was replaced by Jellybeans, a rolling skating rink.
