The Country’s Oldest Ice Cream Fountain Is Just A Short Drive Away
Ice Cream, Old Fashioned Soda and Candy lovers, did you know that the oldest Ice Cream Fountain in the United States is right in our area?
The Wilton Candy Kitchen, in Wilton, Iowa has been open for over 150 years. The building and business are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It's easy to find in the town of just over 2,000 people, located a few miles off Interstate Highway 80.
Going there is like a step back in time. From the look and feel, which hasn't changed much over the years, to the tasty treats like, homemade soda pops, their special green and red river drinks to Ice Cream and Candy.
There is seating at the counter, marble covered booths and even an old style phonograph.
Seems to me with this treasure less that a just a half hour away that it just got added to my weekend bucket list.
