In 2003, Sarah Morton, founder of Mortons Moo and mother of new owner Kirsten Henry, began making and selling ice cream in a small building next to the current 9 School Street location. As Sarahs ice cream became popular, Mortons Moo relocated to 9 School Street to accomodate the growing business. Unfortunately in 2008, Mortons Moo closed due to illness. Recently, new owners Kirsten and Steve recognized that the people of Ellsworth missed the ice cream parlor and saw the potential for a fun family business. With help from Sarah, Mortons Moo begins anew with owners Kirsten and Steve at the reins.
