Large Ice Cream Cone

Sky Kone is a large ice cream cone stand on the west end of Main Street in Ackley.

[Pamela Schipper, 07/20/2018]

The cone has a service widow and is big enough for an ice cream machine and two workers. It's the vision of Jeffery Kurth, who survived eight years of design and construction -- and a lung transplant -- to open the cone in July 2015.
