Marker is to the right of the walk-up window.
1953 by local contractor Ashton Skinner, Carl's first opened in 1947 as Carl's Frozen Custard in an abandoned gas station and restaurant and still operates today as an ice cream stand on the same property. Art Moderne in style and symmetrical in plan, Carl's is one story high and two rooms deep with a flat roof. The building is constructed of cinderblocks covered in stucco and painted white with a projecting 'marquee' fašade." (Submitted on July 28, 2013, by Allen C. Browne of Silver Spring, Maryland.)
