In the late 19th century Evanston, Illinois, nicknamed "Heavenston" by Frances Willard, was a Methodist-minded town, so pious that the town fathers, resenting the dissipating influence of the soda fountain, passed an ordinance forbidding the sale of ice cream sodas on Sunday. Some ingenious confectioners, obeying the law, served ice cream with syrup but no soda. This sodaless soda was the Sunday soda, and became so popular that orders for "Sundays" crossed the counter everyday of the week. When objection was raised to christening the dish after the Sabbath, the spelling was changed to Sundae, and so developed one of America's most characteristic dishes.

It's a good day for a Sundae on this sunny Sunday.

If one searches that site, one will find that this statement about sundaes is said to be a quote from one "William Lyon Phelps". The source for this is something called "Poor Man's College" which is "the collection of 2000 quotes that Aapex software was giving away as a promotion for their quotations CD. Unfortunately, Aapex Software has vanished and this is pretty much all that's left." I don't know whether Poor Man's College is a trusted reference source or not.

However, apparently there are a number of different "origin stories" for the Sundae. See here for some others:

I'm missing something. Did the methodist community see something sinful in soda on Sunday?

This old thread even has a post from Steve Brooks.

Al, my dad was raised as a Free Methodist. They saw something sinful in pretty much everything.

And there is apparently some controversy over the origin of the Sundae. Which is hardly surprising, I suppose.
