Ice cream and Immigrant House

The Old Mountain View Neighborhood holds its annual ice cream social this Sunday at Mercy-Bush Park, and this year the event celebrates the downtown's historic Immigrant House.

From noon to 3 p.m. on Aug. 18 there will be live musical performances, various games, prizes, and of course, ice cream.

Marina Marinovich, who has been working to save the "Immigrant House" — the tiny historic home at 466 Bryant St. that was recently saved from destruction and moved but still needs restoration — says there will be numerous Immigrant House-related activities, including storytelling and models of the home for kids to build. A woman who lived in the home during World War II may also be in attendance.

"It's going to be incredible," Marinovich said of the event.
