Flagpole Specials No More

Apr 18, 2005

Today was a sad day for generations of Grace College and Seminary students as a local icon in the Warsaw/Winona Lake (IN) area bit the dust.

“The Flagpole,” a well-known ice cream shop on East Winona Avenue that dates at least back into the 1950s was torn down today to make room for an office complex to be built.

Generations of Grace College and Seminary students enjoyed malts, sundaes and “Flagpole Specials” at the hands of Ted Franchino and other colorful proprietors who have owned the business. Athletes, Grace sports teams and traveling music groups from many decades enjoyed spotting their photos under the plexiglass tabletops in the Flagpole’s dining area. Posted by Hello
