Boston Children’s Museum announced today that the iconic Milk Bottle will undergo a major renovation to its facade and infrastructure with the support of HP Hood.
The Milk Bottle was built in 1934 by Arthur Gagner of Taunton to dispense the homemade ice cream he produced. Standing 40 feet tall and weighing in at 15,000 pounds, the Milk Bottle was one of America’s first fast-food drive-in restaurants and an authentic example of the “Coney Island” style of architecture. If it were real, it could hold 58,620 gallons of milk.
“We are thrilled that the iconic Milk Bottle will be getting a much-needed facelift.
