Step up to the counter and go back in time. The guy behind the counter was friendly & welcoming. He pours a mean rootbeer! The kids loved the ice cream. We didn't buy any candy but if you want a selection they sure had it! After a trip to the Indiana Caverns this place is worth the stop!

The classic styling and flavors of an old fashioned soda fountain. Scoop up a scoop of some of the best flavors of ice cream around take those penny candies you remember from long ago. Customers are friends and treated like guests in your home. A must stop in Corydon

We found this yummy soda fountain on Trip Advisor and visited after doing wine tastings at Turtle Run just a few miles away. The only problem with Emery's yummy ice cream, was that they have too many choices! Yum!

Description
Rotating over a 100 flavors of hand dipped ice cream, Emery's Premium Ice Cream has been an American tradition since the 50's. Emery's began during the great depression as a family business, tucked away in a residential neighborhood of New Albany, Indiana. Kevin Paul, owner of Alvin's Enterprises' purchased the memorabilia and equipment from the original Emery's store and ... Has recreated the atmosphere of the old-fashioned ice cream shop. Visiting Emery's today evokes the feeling of traveling back in time to the era in which Emery's originated. And it should; not much has changed aside from its new location in Corydon, Indiana. The bar stools, counter, vintage posters art, and most importantly the ice cream bins and soda fountains are all from Emery's original location. You can enjoy the same favorite Emery's homemade flavors that were enjoyed years ago. Visit Emery's today and discover why it has been a favorite for over 60 years!
