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:

It’s still the March of Dimes, but now the spring walks are called March for Babies.  And even though they’re a couple months away, it’s your chance to get involved, in the campaign to improve the health of all babies, and to fight prematurity.
Get involved in the Walk kickoffs:

Syracuse: March 13 (Thursday) 8am at Renaissance Hotel (701 E Genesee St)
Ithaca: March 27 (Thursday) 6pm at Holiday Inn, Downtown.

Mark your calendar for the March for Babies:
Oswego: April 26 (Saturday) at Oswego Speedway
Syr/L’pool: April 27 (Sunday) at Long Branch Park
Ithaca: May 4 (Sunday) at Cornell
