WE ALL SCREAM FOR ICE CREAM: A HISTORY OF SUMMER’S FAVORITE TREAT


Visit the Carroll Gallery in the Carriage House on the grounds of the Emlen Physick Estate in Cape May, NJ before November 3, 2024 to check out the WE ALL SCREAM FOR ICE CREAM Victorian Ice Cream Exhibit – featuring artifacts from Bassetts Ice Cream.

At the beginning of the 1800s, ice cream was an elite and expensive dish in flavors like Parmigiano and asparagus. By the end of the 1800s, ice cream was adored by everyone in flavors like vanilla, chocolate and strawberry. Some of our favorite dishes, like the ice cream cone, the ice cream sundae and the banana split are Victorian inventions. This exhibit celebrates summer’s favorite treat. See an authentic 1898 ice cream maker and other artifacts, and a reproduction Victorian ice cream wagon. Discover the diverse innovators and pioneers of ice cream, and the development of the ice cream scoop and commercial ice cream freezer, including Augustus Jackson, Nancy Johnson, Bassetts of Philadelphia, and more.
