How this Iconic Orlando ice cream stand defied racial stigma
Sitting in its original location since 1948, Goff’s Ice Cream stand has kept its doors open on the “Trail” for the past 73 years. In the peak of racial tensions in Florida, Goff’s tradition brought people together instead of dividing them with America’s most iconic desert -- ice cream. AdPeacock said his little ice cream stand is still thriving despite the economic challenges that have recently come his way. So be sure to stop by and get yourself a treat and carry on the Orlando ice cream tradition of Goff’s. Though Goff’s Ice Cream is not considered a locally registered historic landmark, perhaps someday the city of Orlando will honor this iconic Central Florida business.
