110 Years of Wonderful

 

1904 was a momentous year in history. The Riordan Mansion was constructed and ice cream cones and cotton candy were popularized at the World’s Fair in St. Louis. Thank you to the following who helped us honor 1904 at Riordan Mansion on August 11th: Richard Patton for his research of the Riordan brothers’ correspondence to compile and present the history of the construction of the 13,000 square foot duplex. Dr. Ken Odell for providing the ingredients and manpower to make homemade chocolate and vanilla ice creams (it is no simple task to hand mix the stuff!). To Joy Cone for donating the waffle cones to hold the ice cream and to staff member Breann Velasco via Cold Stone Creamery to mix the mint ice cream now known as “Rocky Riordan Road,” a name coined by Richard Patton in honor of the 1904 events. The Riordan Action Network provided “Fairy Floss” (aka cotton candy) and all other items needed to make the event a success.
