Whit's End is an ice cream shop and discovery emporium located in Odyssey, USA. The owner of this establishment is a man by the name of John Avery Whitaker. Whit's End has a fascinating history. It was not built with original plans. It was designed after a house called the Tate House. Originally it was the Mayor of Odyssey's house. Then it was the town church. And then the Philmore Recreation Center. It was supposed to be torn down to build a shopping mall, an idea proposed by a congressman known as Philip Glossman. Mr. Whitaker's wife, Jenny Whitaker, was trying to lead a proposal to save the center saying it had emotional value to the people of Odyssey.
