I really enjoyed the ice cream festival this year and "Founding Flavors." I tried all of them: oyster, parmesan, basil, lavender and green tea. Lots of free festivities and ice cream to sample!

Locals go here as part of field trips in grade school or even as a family outing. The history is engaging and the ghost stories are just as good. A great little piece of history.
