Hank’s Frozen Custard
In 1947 Hank had a “hankering” for a delight known now by thousands of customers as frozen custard. The little square block building, I faintly remember as a child, and the first taste of something new—”frozen custard.” Over the years, 30 flavors have been featured, with chocolate and vanilla topping more cones than any other flavor. (Orange pineapple was my personal favorite!)
Just say Hank’s anywhere in Beaver County and folks know the favorite destination for a warm summer evening drive and good eats – Mexican food topped off with a towering cone of custard and a free car cruise for entertainment.
The setting for this rendering was the expanded original building. An icon for about 53 years before the present building replaced the old. The Electko Freezers are as old as Hank’s and are turned off the last Sunday of September for another season of dispensing “cool treats.”

Giclee Print of an Original Pastel Painting
~ Pastel Artist ~
Gary Means, a native of Beaver County, Pennsylvania, developed an early interest in Commercial Art. In 1965 this resulted in an Associate Degree from Universal Art Academy, Pittsburgh, PA where he also taught for three years.
His early passion for illustration as a teenager led him to create “Parables in Pastels.
His illustrated themes and stories from the Bible and many other subjects, using pastels, special lighting effects, and background music, rendered a finished painting, LIVE, before the audience in less than 25 minutes!
He took his “Parables in Pastels” on the road which traveling locally and throughout the country, painting, speaking, and preaching the gospel to many churches, groups, and organizations.
In 1999, a commission from the Cranberry Twp. Historical Society to illustrate a book on the History of Cranberry Twp., led to an interest in recreating scenes from the 1940’s and 1950’s of nostalgic Beaver County locations.
These scenes remain popular and continue to conjure treasured memories to this day.
Gary and his wife, Marty, are now retired and living in Economy Borough , PA
Most of his paintings can be purchased as Giclee Prints, with some originals still available.
