Trowbridge's Ice Cream & Sandwich Shop


Talk about love at first sight! In 1917, Paul Trowbridge stopped in Florence on his way to a dairy convention in North Carolina. He liked the area so much that he returned to Texas, packed his possessions and moved his family to Florence. He opened the Trowbridge Creamery in 1918 and developed the recipe for orange pineapple ice cream. Later, hot dogs and homemade chili were added to the menu. Today, customers can still enjoy ice cream and sandwiches offered by the third generation of Trowbridges.
