Legendary HV Ice Cream Joint Closes, Property on Auction Block
A local ice cream shop and miniature golf course is going on the auction block and can be yours for just pennies on the dollar.
In May, Zoghby's Blueberry Mountain Ice Cream in Wallkill was excited to announce that they would be opening their ice cream shop for the summer. With so many businesses struggling during the COVID-19 pandemic, Blueberry Mountain was determined to get the season going, offering walk-up service and takeout.
Located on Route17M North in Middletown, the iconic ice cream shop was a favorite of locals for their homemade premium ice cream, waffle cones, and an 18-hole miniature golf course where customers could putt balls while enjoying their treats.
On October 3rd, Zoghby's Blueberry Mountain Ice Cream announced to customers that they were closing for the season. What no one knew, however, was that the legendary ice cream shop would be shutting its doors for good.
