This Old School Montana Ice Cream Parlor Will Take You Back In Time
If you were born and raised in Montana and you’ve never spent a summer day in
Virginia City, you’re really missing out. Not only is this charming little ghost town frozen in time, but it also happens to be home to one of the Treasure State’s most delightful ice cream parlors. When you’re strolling the streets of Virginia City, you’ll definitely want a cone from Virginia City Creamery in your hand.
Virginia City Creamery is as old-fashioned as it gets.
The ice cream here is made from scratch, slow-churned in small batches like the good old days.
Virginia City is Montana's liveliest ghost town, and this place is no exception.
The creamery is open from May - September, and you'll rarely see an empty seat inside during business hours.
The ice cream here is downright addictive.
The old-fashioned slow churning process makes a world of difference in the taste.
If you time your visit right, you can even watch the ice cream being churned.
It's made fresh daily in an antique ice cream freezer using recipes from an old White House cookbook.
Due to the way the ice cream is made, the flavors rotate frequently.
Of course, since summer is huckleberry season, it's safe to say you'll typically be able to get fresh, creamy huckleberry ice cream anytime.
When you visit, don't forget to leave a friendly note or a flavor suggestion on the wall.
They call this wall "old-fashioned social media" (which is probably the best kind).
From May - September, Virginia City Creamery is open daily from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m.
This delicious goodness might ruin you for all other ice cream, but it's worth taking that risk.
Address: 205 Wallace Street, Virginia City, MT, 59755
