The Creamery is one of Skaneateles’ primary cultural centers.  Recently, we were able to acquire the property next door, which once housed the boiler for the Cremery.  We have a rare opportunity to expand. 

The museum expansion will feature the Boat & Transportation Museum.  The original Creamery and the new Boat & Transportation museum will be connected by a wing adjacent to Skaneateles Creek.  In addition, the existing Creamery will receive a much needed expansion for research and record retention.

The Skaneateles Historical Society is asking that you donate funds for this project.  Your tax-deductible donations can be sent to:
