History Corner - The Crescent Creamery situated at 25 Laurier Avenue

The first creamery in Yorkton was established by shareholders in 1891, closing a few years later for lack of funds when some members had forsaken their pledges. A new Creamery was opened in 1895 under the ownership of a local businessman, James Crerar, lasting until 1902. Next was the Ideal Creamery, sold to Crescent Creamery in 1915. Crescent sold to the Standard Creamery in 1954. It is still listed at the same address in the 1966 City Directory.
This edition of History Corner was originally published in the August 18, 2010 issue of Yorkton This Week.
