The Widow's Walk was constructed in 1998 to be an ice creamery. The previous owners, Bryan and Jerry Fraley, purchased the property in 2006 and then sold it to Jill Dodson in October 2016.
A friend of Bryan and Jerry's (and former owner), designed the home combining architectural elements from classic Victorian homes on the East coast and the Hemingway home in Key West Florida. The big yellow house in front of the ice cream shop is the Ice Creamery owner's residence.
We offer walk-up window service outside at the ice cream building at the back of the house during the Spring, Summer and early Fall months and we offer online ordering (for pick-up or delivery) November through February. Beginning November 2023, we'll be open for walk-up window service MOST weekends during November and December. Our 2021 and 2022 season was spent operating under unusual circumstances while our new building was under construction (temporarily served from the front porch of the main house's Private Residence), but as of Labor Day 2022, our new building opened! We're often asked if access to the inside of the house or the porch is available, which, it is not, but we have plenty of outside seating on the property. We've been told many times that we have the best ice cream in Louisville, Kentucky and in Kentuckiana! Thanks so much to all of you for making our business a success and we look forward to seeing you again (or even for the first time)!
