Celebrating 100 years of Peninsula State Park

Peninsula State Park located in Wisconsin's beautiful Door County celebrated their 100th anniversary this year and Rome was happy to help out by sponsoring a celebratory marshmallow roast. the event took place during the WI State Park system's annual Campground Host and Volunteer Jamboree. Over 160 people were able to make it to the event.

Congrats to the State of Wisconsin for prioritizing the funding of the park system. In the era of ever tightening budgets, it's wonderful to be able to celebrate the 100th anniversary of a state park such as Peninsula.

Find A Pie Iron

We've recently added a new way to find Rome pie irons in your area using google maps. By clicking on the link below you'll be transported to an interactive map that you can use to zoom in/out & pan to the part of the country you're interested in. In addition to store address & phone numbers, most of the stores have links to their website.

While we'd love the map to be totally accurate, this is a people powered endeavor and we're going to miss stores that should be on the map and we'll probably even have stores that have closed/moved or stopped selling our line. Help us out by dropping us a line with suggested changes (michael at You can also leave comments on the map regarding your experience or thoughts on an individual store.
