This Dairy Queen in Minneapolis has been here since 1957 or 1960, depending on which source you believe. The signage has been updated to reflect its partnership with Orange Julius. The vintage rooftop sign remains. [map]

Dairy Queen
Paxton, IL
Dairy Queen
Saskatoon, SK
This Dairy Queen sign in Worthington was most likely installed on the roof originally before being moved to poles in front of the building. This sign is lit at night. For more, see this website. [map]

This Dairy Queen sign in Paxton is now missing its neon and is painted a lighter shade of blue. This sign and the ones in Worthington and Minneapolis above do not have the curved piece at the back. All three of the cones are larger and do not have the circles behind them. There is also no horizontal line. I assume that these signs were a later design. [map]

Dairy Queen
Huntington, IN
This Huntington Dairy Queen sign features a sundae instead of a cone. I don't know if this was an option or a later change. I have never seen another sign like this one. It does appear to be original and untampered with. The sign is lit at night. For more, see this website. [map]

Dairy Queen
Iowa City, IA
This Dairy Queen opened around 1952. It was hit by a tornado in 2006. The original sign on the building was destroyed. Later that year, the stand was rebuilt and reopened with this replica sign. The two ice cream cone pole signs by the road survived the tornado. In 2008, the stand was then hit by flooding but the damage was less extensive. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2. [map]

former Dairy Queen
Cannon Falls, MN
This former Dairy Queen has been known as the Dairy Inn since at least the 1980s. The Dairy Queen sign was adapted. [map]

Dairy Queen
Anadarko, OK
Dairy Crest
Springfield, OH
This Dairy Queen cone sign must have had neon originally and a paint job like the ones in Iowa City above. I believe this location opened in 1949. This photo is from 2011. By 2013, the location's name was changed to Dairy Freeze. The Dairy Queen logo on the cone sign had been painted over. [map]

This Dairy Crest was originally a Dairy Queen. Around 1952, it broke away from the chain and changed its name and sign. The first photo was taken 2003; the second in 2009. I believe this business is closed now. [map]

This Dairy Queen sign in Tampa was adapted by Sooo Good Southern Barbeque. This photo is from 2009. The business closed around 2013. The building now houses Big Momma's Smokehouse BBQ. The Dairy Queen sign had been painted white and the business name is spelled out with red backlit plastic letters. In 2015, the sign was repainted for Cajun in a Truck. The painted fire is back to an ice cream cone. [map]
