Historic Sites of Manitoba: Eriksdale Creamery Museum (Eriksdale, RM of Eriksdale)

The former Eriksdale Creamery was constructed around 1912, in the village of Eriksdale in the Rural Municipality of Eriksdale, by the Brandon Creamery and Supply Company. The building was of standard wood-frame construction and, like many early creameries, it was expanded several times as increased production required. The core of the operation was the main room where the weighing, grading and churning of the cream took place. In recent years, the operation became largely a butter-finishing, then a butter-cutting business. The Eriksdale Creamery ceased operation permanently in 1990.

In 1995, a volunteer museum group was established to acquire and restore the facility to preserve and commemorate this once significant aspect of rural life in Manitoba. The building is a municipally designated historic site. The museum also includes a former Anglican church building.
