Why We Live Here . . . King's Ice Cream
I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream! Especially when it is from King’s Ice Cream Shop!
1972 marked the year that King’s Homemade Ice Cream Shops opened its doors. That year Earl King bought a general store in historic Milton, Delaware and eventually concentrated all his efforts on perfecting ice cream recipes and churning out the best ice cream on the Eastern Shore. Forty four years later, King’s Ice Cream in Milton and its second location, opened by son Tom and his wife Chris in 1981 in the historic seaport town of Lewes, Delaware, still serve its awarding winning ice cream, frozen yogurts, and water ices to thousands of satisfied customers from the mid-Atlantic area.
The Milton location operates out of the oldest commercial building, circa 1830, in Sussex, County and has an historic marker on the property noting its long history of serving the people of Milton. The Lewes location sits among the many quaint shops and popular eateries that line Second Street. The town hosts many events during the year and receives many visitors that come to enjoy the beaches, historic houses and buildings, and offerings of the town. Both the Lewes and Milton shops are in small close knit communities.
