Dairy Queen
St. Joseph, MO
This Dairy Queen, while now sided over and wearing a new roof, still has the original neon sign. The plastic pole sign is a rare survivor. Most of those panels have been replaced with versions reading "DQ" or replaced entirely with DQ swoosh logo signs. [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]

Dairy Queen
Anadarko, OK
2011: 2020:
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. By 2013, the location's name was changed to Dairy Freeze and the Dairy Queen logo on the cone sign had been painted over. [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 Crest
Springfield, OH
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]

Loder's Shake Shoppe
North Royalton, OH
Loder's Shake Shoppe opened as a Dairy Queen in 1952. It became Loder's Shake Shoppe in 1965. The neon sign was evidently adapted then. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2. [map]

Edd's Drive-in
Pascagoula, MS
Edd's Drive-in opened in 1953 as a Dairy Queen. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2. [map]

former Dairy Queen
Beaver, UT
This Dairy Queen now houses Mel's Drive Inn. In 2003, it was known as Annie's Drive Inn. [map]

former Dairy Queen

This Dairy Queen now houses the Shake Shack. [map]

former Dairy Queen
Tampa, FL
2009: 2020:
By 2007, this Dairy Queen sign had been adapted by Sooo Good Southern BarB-Que. The business closed around 2013. In 2015, the building was still vacant and the sign was painted white. Later that year, Cajun in a Truck moved in and new wording and an ice cream were painted back onto the sign. By 2018, Andrew Pandrew's Jerk Hut had moved in and the sign was painted over again.
