Each Monday the Centre Daily Times will publish an installment in our “Share our Heritage” series, featuring photos from Centre County’s past. Today’s photo is from Nancy Luse.

Luse wrote: “In the early 1950s, when frozen custard stands were popping up for the increasing motoring public, my grandparents, William and Clara Corl, decided to join the trend with the Dari-Treet that they built in Pine Grove Mills.

“It was not too big a stretch for the couple who were dairy farmers all their lives. Travelers and locals enjoyed a cone of ice cream and on Sundays, as well as in the summer, the lines at the windows were indeed long. The location is now the home of The Naked Egg, a restaurant and coffee shop.”

Readers can contribute to the “Share our Heritage” series by sharing their own photos. Just drop off or mail copies of the photos to Centre Daily Times, 3400 E.
