Jacob Fussell opened America's first ice cream factories on June 15, 1851 in Baltimore. Jacob Fussell is known as the "Father of the Ice Cream Industry" largely because he opened the first large scale ice cream factory in the U.S. in Baltimore, Maryland back in 1851. Back then, the average American ate just one teaspoon of ice cream per year (What?!). Today, the average person indulges in over 23 quarts per year
