Thanks for postng these pictures. My dad worked at Buttercup as assistant, then plant manager from 1945 until 1975. Both my brothers worked there during their high school years. That 1957 Chevy parked in front of the plant was my dads. I've never tasted ice cream as fresh and good as Buttercups. Thanks for the memories!

I worked a summer there with Frank's son Charles Warlick. I made $1.85/hour packing popsicles. And, the fresh made ice cream was the best when it came straight out of the machines. Peace.

An on-line inflation chart shows that the $290,000 (yearly ?) payroll in 1932 has an approximate equivalency in 2017 dollars of $5,200,000. Buttercup was indeed an major employer in the Hamlet area!
