Local Pizza in Callicoon expands with a new ice cream shop.

The origins of ice cream parlors have often been debated, but most scholars trace the first ice cream parlor back to France in the 17th century. Ice Cream remained a rare and exotic dessert enjoyed mostly by the elite until 1800. In the early 1800s, an early form of a U.S. ice cream parlor existed in Philadelphia, PA which sold all kinds of refreshments, such as ice cream, French Cordials, Cakes, Clarets, jellies, etc.
