PALACE OF SWEETS
1920 to 1930, the Palace of Sweets was the candy dreamland of both children and adults. This locally famous candy store and soda fountain, located at 123 West Madison in downtown Pontiac, offered everything from “penny” candies to malteds and sundaes. Whether to celebrate a birthday, a graduation, a first date, or some other special event, a trip to the “Palace” provided everyone with a delicious treat and a lasting memory. One of the unique features of the sweet shop was the beautiful stained glass mosaic sign proclaiming its name located on both the Madison and Mill Street facades of the shop. That artifact is still visible today under an awning which protects it.
