Lunch - Ice Cream - Gifts

The Village Parlor is a place where you can eat lunch, try some ice cream, get a coffee and shop for gifts all at the same time. It is a very quaint and unique parlor. I love adventuring to new places to see what they offer especially right here in the town I live in. This business is located in beautiful Northern Wisconsin in the town of Ladysmith.

As a special surprise my Fiancée wanted to take me out for ice cream at this Village Parlor. He'd never been to it himself since he lived here in this town. So we set out on our adventure. When we pulled up it was an older Victorian home look with a beautiful front porch and a back patio. The back patio over looks the Flambeau River which very beautiful. When we stepped inside the parlor we were surprised to see all the wonderful antiques and gifts. Then we found out they serve lunch too besides ice cream. So we both decided on croissant sandwiches; shrimp for me and chicken for him. They both came as a meal with kettle chips, two sweet pickles and a large sliced strawberry all put on a bright stripped plastic plate. We ate out on the back patio. What a beautiful of the Flambeau River. Then we both ordered ice cream waffle cones. Very fantastic! We had a great time checking the Village Parlor out for first time.

In this article I'll share some history about this old Victorian house and photo's of this quaint Village Parlor. it is such a beautiful place! It's a historic adventure!

Historic Ladysmith History

The Village Parlor

There is a lot of history behind the house that the Village Parlor is in. This house operated five other businesses before it became The Village Parlor. It was built in 1905; in a colonial style.

The first three businesses during 1905-1936 were a plow factory, drug store and a hardware store. It then became a parsonage for the First Church of Christ in 1937. After that in 1970 is became a beauty salon. All very prominent businesses during these years.

In 1996 it then changed ownership once again. in 2002 a pretty bad tornado came through town and damaged several businesses and homes. This being one of them. After the tornado damage the house was remodeled to its original colonial Victorian style right down to the hand carved staircase. This is how it became The Village Parlor in 2003. A place where you can get hand dipped ice cream, coffee and lunch; then enjoy shopping in the gift shop for country Victorian style gifts. You can sit on the front porch or on the deck and enjoy the view of the Flambeau River.

it is such a beautiful place! It's a historic adventure!

Multi Plaid Melamine Plates

The color of these plates remind of the ones that our lunch was served on at The Village Parlor except they were square. These are round. I love the bold plaid colors!

Now doesn't this ice cream look yummy?! This is what you will find at The Village Parlor when you visit. It will be hand dipped to your choice. I had one with two flavors; one with a chocolate and then a mint. Actually it was a three scoop with mint in the middle of the chocolate. I'd love to share a photo of it with you but I got so excited at tasting and eating it plus it was melting from the warm day; I forgot to take a photo. Believe me it was the best ice cream ever!

When I go back again I'll be sure to take a photo of the ice cream and share it with you firsthand!

Watch for an update down the road.

Overlooking Flambeau River

Lets sit and eat; learn a little about the Flambeau River.

The Flambeau River is a tributary of the Chippewa River here in Northern Wisconsin. Tributary means stream or river that runs into the main stem of a river or lake. There are two forks in this river; north and south.The North flowage goes to the Manitowish and Bear River. The South flowage goes to Round Lake, Turtle River and Elk River. Both forks flow from the main stem of the Chippewa River. Sounds like your going in circles if you ask me but non the less a beautiful river!

I looked up to see what Flambeau means. It means Torch in French. The reason it means this is that the early explorers saw the local Chippewa Indians fishing at night by torchlight. The river here is great for fishing. I've heard small mouth bass and muskellunge are big catches from the Flambeau River.

      Always fun to meet a fellow Wisconsinite! I visited Ladysmith for the first time over this past Memorial Day weekend and now after reading your lens, I really wish we would have stopped for ice cream at The Village Parlor. Great lens!
