WHATELY, Mass. (AP) — The iconic giant milk bottle in downtown Whately (WAYTE’-lee) has been given a face-lift.
The Whately Historical Society recently restored the large concrete milk jug that’s nearly 20 feet tall with $650 in donations.
Society member Adelia Bardwell says the bottle was scraped down, cleaned and repainted with a new emblem and cream line. The bottle reads “Quonquont Farm Certified Milk.” It was originally built for a local dairy farm in the 1920s.
She tells The Recorder of Greenfield (http://bit.ly/18ssA40 ) that it’s important the bottle be in tip-top shape because it’s the “symbol of Whately.”
The society began discussing refurbishing the landmark one year ago as black mildew stained the white surface.
Ice cream is still served out of the bottle’s Dutch door at the town’s fall festival.
