The History of the Jigger Shop
Presented by Chuck Allwein who is the Jigger Shop’s seventh owner and is still active in the business.

Built in 1895 as a small open-air ice cream stand, the Jigger Shop was originally known as “Meyer’s Pavilion.” Subsequently renamed after a special sundae – the Jigger – that was given its name by a group of young female customers around 1910, the Jigger Shop is celebrating its 120th anniversary this year. It remains a popular destination for visitors from throughout central Pennsylvania.

Advance registration for the September 4 program is not required. A $5 per person contribution is requested from those attending the program.
