The Old Dairy Cream in New Albany
My name is Carolyn, and my brother, Benjamin, and I grew up with our parents, Harrison and Leona Drake, on Reynoldsburg-New Albany Road just south of Morse Road. When Ben and I were kids, the only thing in New Albany that interested us was the Dairy Cream. To our young minds, that\’s all New Albany was–a place to get that new fancy soft-serve ice cream. (Sorry, Eagle\’s Pizza!) I believe the old Dairy Cream was located at about where the McCoy Center is now. Everyone referred to that street as Dublin-Granville Road. Northland Mall was on Morse Road, and if our father drove down Morse to get to Northland, he would take us back home via Dublin-Granville. When we were near the Dairy Cream, Ben and I became very thirsty and hungry and begged our parents to stop for yummies. Many times, though, the answer from our parents was, \”No. We are close to home and you can eat and drink there.\” We were some very disappointed kids, LOL!
