Who Remembers…

Who remembers the Tastee-Freez at 115 West Prairie Street in Vicksburg? Bill Heehler built a block building on his old used car lot in 1951, and Millard Wilcox turned it into the Tastee-Freez. The Tastee-Freez became Vicksburg’s introduction to drive-up fast food. It remained the same, with new owners, until 1984 when it became home to a variety of businesses, including Fred’s Pharmacy’s first location, Boundary Waters Coffee Shop, and Apple Knockers. The current business is Kervey’s Bakery. Send your memory to remember.southcountynews@gmail.com. Photo and background submitted by The Vicksburg Historical Society.
