For younger Milton residents, the corner of Eliot Street and Central Avenue is the home to a vacant building, but for longtime Miltonians, the boarded up building was once Hendries Ice Cream.
A plan from developer Steve Connelly to demolish the Hendries building and build a multi-use residential and commercial property at 131 Eliot Street is currently before the Milton Planning Board.
Through historical photos from the Milton Historical Society we can see what the property looked like when Hendries was open.
The first photo shows Hendries in 1955.
The second photo is a recent area showing the building as it looks today.
