The space
Why is our home known as an Ice Cream House? One of the first owners of this house were the Witty Family. The Witty family owned and ran an ice cream shop, Witty's Ice Cream, from 1928-1958 in nearby Highland Park, Illinois. Visitors to our home can view a historic photograph of Peter and Henry Witty, father and son, standing behind the counter of their shop. The Witty family manufactured their ice cream in the horse stable behind the house. The stable remains in the backyard to this day.
