Birthplace of the Ice Cream Sundae

A neat historical museum [Historic Washington House] with an ice cream parlor inside. I expected to spend about 20 minutes, but stayed for nearly two hours. It seems to focus on artifacts collected from the first half of the 20th century. There's even a fully functioning ballroom, from the Big Band era, on the top floor.

[Jon Morgan, 10/10/2015]

The museum has a working ice cream parlor, which is something that you won't find in most historical museums, but it makes sense in the Birthplace of the Ice Cream Sundae.
