HUNTINGTON — After 60 years of car-side serving homemade root beer and hotdogs with a perfected sauce, it’s safe to say the rotating root beer float on Hal Greer Boulevard is a verified Huntington landmark.

Frostop Drive-In celebrated its 60th anniversary in Huntington on Monday with a day-long party at the restaurant featuring past employees, cake and commemorative mugs, which were given to every customer.

The Huntington Frostop is just one of 13 remaining stands in the country. The drive-in was first opened in the 1930s in Ohio and spread to over 300 at its height in the 1950s.
