Polar Bear Frozen Custard operated in 1938 on the southwest corner of Central and Oliver, where there is now a strip center that most recently held Three Pea Consignment Gallery. According to the Wichita-Sedgwick County Historical Museum, the shop sat diagonally on the corner, and its designers used mortar to mold the artificial snow and ice.
