The Return of Southold Historical Society’s

Ice Cream Social

Museum Complex 55200 Main Road

“We all scream for the ice cream”

No one can put on an ice cream social quite like the Southold Historical Society. For many years, families flocked to the historical society grounds for fun – including delicious ice cream.  This year, volunteers vowed to bring the Southold Historical Society Ice Cream Social back.  And so, the festivities will return on August 10, 2019.

Ice cream lovers of all ages are sure to enjoy the event.  Children’s games, face painting and live music are the cherries on top.  Included in the day’s activities will be tours of the many historic buildings at the site, including the Ann Currie-Bell, Thomas Moore House, the Gagen Blacksmith Shop and the Robert P. Long Print Shop.  There will also be hot dogs, lemonade, and popcorn available for purchase.

“The ice cream social had long been a very popular event in our community.  Children would look forward to the social each summer, and families would make certain to be in town that weekend.” said Deanna Witte-Walker, the society’s executive director. “We are thrilled to be able to bring back this treasure.”

The Society’s seasonal exhibition – “On The Waterfront” – will also be on display in the Mayne Gallery of the Ann Currie-Bell House and a 10 x 10 art sale will be taking place in the Reichert Family Barn.

The ice cream social is Saturday, August 10 from 12 to 4 pm at the Society’s Maple Lane Museum Complex, located on the corner of Main Road and Maple Lane, opposite the Southold Firehouse.  Entrance to the grounds is $5 per adult.  Kids 14 and under enter for free.  Food and games require tickets that may be purchased on the site all day long.
