What started as a little custard stand on Chincoteague Island, VA, back in the mid 1950's, when you could buy an ice cream cone for a nickel, is still continuing today. It was a new beginning in the world of soft serve ice cream when Mr. Lee Savage of Chincoteague opened a little ice cream shop behind his house called the Dari Dream, which he and his wife worked together. They would open the last day of school and give away free ice cream to all the school kids.
