Crestview Library has scoop on ice cream

Vintage ice cream cartons, a decorative sign and classic ice cream scoops are some of the delicious vintage ice cream memorabilia on display at the Crestview Public Library.

CRESTVIEW, Fla., March 16, 2023—America’s favorite frozen treat is the focus of a cool display currently at the Bob Sikes Public Library through March.

Cartons and root beer float mugs to just about everything else ice creamy is on display in the Crestview Library lobby.

From the vast collections of residents Wanda and Mark Hulion comes a diverse array of ice cream-related serving dishes, vintage packages, signs, churns and almost 70 assorted scoops.

“Mark and I have had a lot of fun with it over the years,” Wanda, a retired Crestview Police officer and Historic Preservation Board member, said. “We are so glad people are enjoying it.”

Nearly 70 vintage ice cream scoops are on display at an ice cream themed Crestview Public Library display through March.

The display includes a broad variety of ice cream scoops: paddle scoops, aluminum scoops that make small ice cream balls, scoops that split in half after digging out a ball of ice cream to drop it into the cone and others.

To savor the exhibit, stop by the Crestview Public Library, 1445 Commerce Dr. during regular Monday through Saturday opening hours. Visit or call 850-682-4432.
