In Gaston County, just a few miles west of Charlotte, an icon of history stands there – Tony’s Ice Cream. For the last 100 years, Tony’s has been serving Ice Cream to the residents of Gaston County. Beginning with a horse drawn cart serving ice cream to the Firestone Mill workers, this business has grown and become one of the county’s ‘go to’ places.
