Frozen goodness

On Sunday, I peered into the windows of this newer downtown ice cream shop. It’s to the side of the Anderson County Courthouse. There’s a bench outside for licking ice cream in the sun, and inside appears to be booths in the shape of rail road cars! A must-visit place this summer.



  1. What a creative idea to draw business! Besides, everybody loves ice cream.

    When I was a boy, in the early ’60’s we would visit this location regularly. It was known as Dickson’s Ice Cream. I first remember going in the car with my parents and a ‘curb hop’ would come to your car, get your order and come back with treats such as a giant banana split. This is also where the owner of ‘Arnolds’ resturant, home of the best chili cheeseburger in town, learned his trade as a teenager.

  4. Love the photo!

    Do you think the owner’s child pronounced “choo-choo” as “Koo-koo”?

  5. Yes, when we were in the process of starting the shop up, our son (then 2) could not say “choo choo train”, he said “koo koo train”, and so the name was born. Stop by for an ice cream, we have giant banana splits too.
    Love the photo! We’d love to put it up at the shop.
