Dorchester Lower Mills Since 1976

The Ice Creamsmith was opened in the Dorchester Lower Mills neighborhood of Boston in June, 1976, the result of two neighbors being unemployed. David Mabel, with a degree in Public Relations, and his Dorchester neighbor, a Sociology major, saw an ad in the paper for the equipment and “know-how” to open a homemade ice cream store, and decided to take a chance.

What a wonderful business story and a great treat to have here in the neighborhood.
