Ben & Jerry's First Store Plaque

The Ben & Jerry's First Store plaque is right across the street from the park.

Missing plaque.

Ben & Jerry's First Store Plaque

I was in Burlington and looked for the "First Store" plaque. It is gone, but there is a mark in the concrete where it was. Did someone pry it up for scrap?

[Peggy, 07/13/2008]

Or perhaps as a souvenir, or even revenge for taking "Bovinity Divinity" off the market? We always thought this sidewalk plaque was too low key. Burlington would attract more downtown visitors with a proper tribute to VT's ice cream history.
