Our Historic Home: The Creamery

The CreameryThe Creamery opened in 1899 as a place for local farmers to sell their milk and for residents to buy dairy products. In 1918 the Skaneateles Creamery Company was sold to the Best Ice Cream Company. They in turn sold it in 1948 to the Borden Milk Company, which ended operations here the following year. A local businessman bought the building for storage space and in 1989 donated it to the Village.
The Skaneateles Historical Society was given the opportunity to renovate the Creamery as a museum and as a home for the Society. In 1992, thanks to gifts of time, talent, and funding from the entire community, the Creamery proudly reopened.

Hours

The Creamery is open from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. on selected Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays throughout the year, depending upon the season. For specifics, see the box near the top of this page.
Extensive materials are available for historical and genealogical research related to the Skaneateles area. Some materials are available in the meeting room that is open to the public, but original archival material is available only on Fridays when a researcher is present to assist, advise, and supervise.

Sun Party

Back-up date: February 23rd

Date: Saturday, February 22
Time: 1-3pm
Location: Baltimore Woods Nature Center Phone: 315-673-1350 Email: info@baltimorewoods.org

Back-up date Feb 23rd

Our sun is the nearest star and is often overlooked by those who watch the night skies. The sun has been at its peak activity this past year with an abundance of sunspots, solar flares, and other features that are fascinating to watch and can also move and change shapes within several minutes. Come out and observe the sun through specially-filtered telescopes and see what it looks like up-close and personal. A great way to warm up on a winter afternoon!

$5 for members, $15/family; $8 for nonmembers, $25/family.
