Eriksdale Creamery Museum 2017

What's new at the Eriksdale Creamery Museum this summer:

* 96 years of community history depicted in 3 quilts:

  • Canada 150 School of Eriksdale Area
  • Manitoba Centennial Quilt (1970)
  • Union Church Ladies Group Quilt (1920-1921)

* Barn Quilt to be erected the first week of August 2017, joining the Interlake Barn Quilt Trail,

Painted by our summer students, Trevor Scott and Adam Mikula, this 8' x 8" sign to be at the north end of the Creamery Museum is called the "Butter Churn" as a variable of the churn quilt pattern. The yellow is for butter and the white and the green is to go with our white and green trimmed museum.  This barn quilt will be registered with the Barn Quilt Trail as soon as erected.

* A new book written by John Linossier called "the Linossier and Montagnon Family, Pioneers in the Interlake Region".  The Linossiers homesteaded in the RM of Eriksdale and built the largest chicken farm in Manitoba housed on the property now belonging the Keith and Debbie Lundale.

* A Monument being dedicated to the Erikson family is being erected on the site where Manny had his home.  In the early 1900's his parents, Jonas and Matilda, donated their land for the hospital.  The railway gave them the right to name our town.  The stone foundation of "Manny's shack" is still evident on Mark and Nicole Jeffers' property.  It is situated just north of the curve on the north entrance of Eriksdale.  Follow the rail bed about a hundred yards to the site.  There will be a ceremony at 11:45am following the parade on Creamery Days, August 19th.

* Our students have been busy working on all sorts of little projects that make a difference.  Be sure to drop by and see what has been done.

Our hours are 9:00am to 4:00pm, Monday to Saturday until August 26.

August 29th and 31st we are open from 1:00pm to 4:00pm.
