Zimmerman's Ice Cream Shop

Zimmerman's Ice Cream Shop, East Main Street, Evans City.


The building was originally a gas station which opened in 1934. Lou Zimmerman purchased the gas station in 1966.


In 1984 they started serving ice cream when a friend was preparing to trash an ice cream maker. Rather than the ice cream maker going in the garbage it became Lou’s new venture.

In 1995 Mr. Zimmerman removed the gas pumps and he and his wife, Dee, focused solely on ice cream.


Lou passed away in January 2020. The ice cream shop was not open when we were in Evans City.
