Historical society hosting old-fashioned ice cream social

Is anyone really sure how long people have enjoyed ice cream? We know that it was a favorite of our first President, George Washington. Did you know that the Clague family also enjoyed this sweet cool treat as well?

The Westlake Historical Society invites you to an old-fashioned ice cream social on Friday, June 6, 6-8:30 p.m., on the lawn of the historic Clague House Museum, 1371 Clague Road.

This is a great opportunity to meet other people in the community and members of our historical society. Families and friends can all enjoy the beautiful setting, guided tours of the museum, and some of the best ice cream and treats around. 

There is no charge for this event, but any donations received will benefit the Historical Society. A wide variety of cold, delicious ice cream, toppings of all kinds, and root beer floats will be available. Both cups and cones will also be available.

The farm was established by the Clague family in 1837. The Clague family donated the family farm to be used as a park and library. The museum houses and displays many artifacts belonging to the Clague family, as well as other pioneer families, and residents of our community.
