Exploring Jackson Michigan and Surrounding Area

The Parlour, the best ice cream around, many would say. Located at 1401 Daniel Rd. Jackson, MI 49202, The Parlour provides its patrons with a classic 50’s diner atmosphere. Originally serving Jackson as a Dairy which opened in the early 1900’s, the company was the result of a merger between Loud’s Dairy and Jackson Dairy Co. in 1933. An ownership change in 1962 led to the name being changed to Jackson All-Star Dairy. It started being called “Loud & Jackson’s” and “The Parlour” in the early 1970s.
The only “complaint” that I have regarding the Parlour, we did not go hungry enough! Lol. We all got a single scoop, and still couldn’t finish everything…and I love ice cream. All-in-all, it was yummy and kid approved.
