Schell’s Mini-Golf, Restaurant and Ice Cream

Nothing says summertime like a trip to Schell’s for some minigolf and ice cream. Schell’s has been a landmark on 5th Street Highway in Muhlenberg Township since 1952. The Mini-golf course opened in 1953, and was made larger in 1969. Many generations of Berks Countians have enjoyed summer evenings at this establishment, as they just celebrated their 65th Anniversary in business back in May. A few favorites are the BBQ sandwhiches and cho-chos. What are some of your fondest memories of this timeless Berks County landmark?

There was also a Schell’s location in West Lawn on Penn Avenue, sometime in the 1960s. If anyone has any information on this location I would love to hear from you.

Born and raised in Berks, I am fascinated by the style, design & culture of the mid-late 20th century. I started this website to research and build a collection of the places, things and stories I have heard about my entire life. Read more here.
