Emmorton Snowballs
 Family Owned and Operated Since 1981
(Editor’s Comment: “Emmorton Snowballs” is technically within the Bel Air zip code, 21015. Nevertheless, as results of an unscientific survey yielded, it 
is clearly a favorite destination of numerous Abingdon residents) 
Emmorton Snowballs and Ice Cream is a second generation family business. It was founded by Chris Covington, affectionatelyknown as Ms. Chris to her customers and the numerous teenagers that worked for her. Ms. Chris passed away in December 2011, but her legacy lives on through her son, Neil. Neil was born afew months after his mother opened the original snowball stand 32 years ago in June, 1981. Now
he is in charge of the business that was his mother’s “labor of love”. Neil literally grew up at the
snowball stand. He is very proud of his mother and the family business she created.
Emmorton Snowballs and Ice Cream was named for the small town of Emmorton, near the crossroads of Emmorton Road andWheel Road. Today, this area is generally considered a part of Bel Air, but a few businesses and sports teams continue to use theEmmorton name. The stand shares the property of the former Emmorton Elementary School, which was completed in 1930, and is
used today as doctors’ offices.
It started out as a small snowball stand, and Ms. Chris spent many long days sitting and waiting for the occasional customer.Dedicated to a business that she knew could succeed, she spent years focusing on quality products and friendly service to build astrong reputation.
By 1988, business had grown enough to warrant expansion beyond the original tiny building. A new building, almost twice aslarge as the first, was erected on site, to replace the original and allow room for a second customer service window.
In 2001, the decision was made to start selling ice cream, and another new building had to be constructed to handle the necessary
upgrades. The 1988 building was moved to the side and today is used as a ‘snowballs only’ customer service area that is opene
donly during peak hours to help minimize customer wait times.
Today Neil strives to continue the tradition of excellent products combined with quality customer service. Thank you for helpingto make Emmorton Snowballs a Harford County tradition for 32 years and counting!
