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.

SKARTS Presents Creative Conversations With Bruce Coville,
Moderated by Patience Brewster
Internationally acclaimed children’s author and educator Bruce Coville will be the featured speaker in the next installment of Creative Conversations, presented by the Skaneateles Area Arts Council (SKARTS).

The program, moderated by artist and entrepreneur Patience Brewster, will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Feb. 28 at The Loft at 42 Genesee St., Skaneateles.

The two will discuss Coville’s prolific work, life and business, and then take questions from the audience.

Coville, who often works with his wife, Kathy, an illustrator, has more than 18 million copies in print. His 100-plus titles include the international bestseller “My Teacher Is an Alien,” along with “Aliens Ate My Homework” the Unicorn Chronicles series and a Shakespearean series for children. He has won numerous awards and honors, including “Children’s Choice” awards from more than a dozen states, and has been named “Best Local Author” by readers of the Syracuse New Times.

In 2002, he founded Full Cast Audio, an audiobook publishing company that produces full-cast, unabridged recordings of children’s and young adult literature.

Coville says the inspiration for many of his stories comes from his early life in Upstate New York. He grew up 20 miles north of Syracuse, around the corner from his grandparents’ dairy farm, where he spent “a great deal of time dodging cows and chores as well as I was able,” so that he could devote time to reading.

As befits an author, Coville has had a storied career, serving as a teacher, toymaker, magazine editor, gravedigger and cookware salesman before becoming a full-time writer.

Moderator Patience Brewster is an artist, author, illustrator and longtime friend of Coville. Since signing her first book contract at the age of 25, she has illustrated more than 34 books, working in a style that is immediately recognizable. Brewster founded her greeting card company in 2002 and the company’s Ornaments and Gifts Division in 2008. She is the sole creative force behind Patience Brewster Inc., which has sales around the world.

“SKARTS launched Creative Conversations last year to feature local artists and thought leaders in our community and create awareness of how art affects us all,” says Holland Gregg, the organization’s president. “Each program features a thought-leader moderator conversing with an artist, musician, performer or writer. More than 90 people attended our first Creative Conversations, and we expect this event will be equally successful and thought provoking.”

The Loft at 42 Genesee St. is owned by Dr. Robert Kiltz and was recently renovated to include five levels of meeting and living space. The space features architectural lighting, original brick walls and a glass elevator. The event will use two levels of the structure. Hors d’oeuvres will be served on the street level and the presentation will be held on the lake level, one floor down.

Sponsors include Dr. Robert Kiltz, The Loft at 42 Genesee St., Patience Brewster Inc., Group M Communications and Skaneateles Talk. Coville and Brewster have graciously contributed their time to the event, as have other local groups and individuals.

Tickets may be purchased for $25 at http://skarts.org/tickets/. Attendance is limited and seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. Reservations are requested by Feb. 24.

SKARTS, a 501(c) (3) not-for-profit organization, works to celebrate the visual and performing arts by creating an environment where cultural activity thrives in our community. The council presents cultural programming, offers free concerts at the gazebo in Clift Park, and issues grants to artists and arts organizations in the Skaneateles area.
