Phil’s Icehouse



Amy and Steve Simmons spent the greater part of 2003 and 2004 looking for a permanent home for Amy’s Ice Creams production facility. When they finally found the old Allendale post office, and Humble gas station with a for lease sign they called to beg the owners to sell. The Bohn brothers turned out to be Steve’s college buddy Chris’s cousins and a deal was made the next day. What they soon discovered is the beauty of the community they had stumbled into. The neighborhoods of Allendale, Brentwood, Violet Crown (a combination) and Crestview were brimming with young families and active seniors eager for neighborhood haunts. The Gas station was first opened in 1945. It was a Humble station owned by Otis Hill (we have customers today that remember Otis pumping their gas). The Austin City Limit ran straight through both properties. The station became an ENCO, then a Mobil, then a series of used car lots. Steve and Amy decided in addition to the production facility in the old post office, they would open an Amy’s Ice Cream shop in the old gas station. They wanted it to be a gathering place for friends, family and fun so they started to plan the playscape, cow sculptures, hop scotch, shuffleboard, movies, music
