Next exhibit by FOS announced
May 30, 2019
Friends of Skamokawa will present its summer 2019 exhibit entitled "Down on the Farm" - a historical text and photo display of the Skamokawa Farmers Creamery 1898-1943, featuring research by noted local author, Irene Martin.
Visitors will learn of the remarkable success of this early creamery co-op located originally on the banks of the Columbia River in Skamokawa. The creamery produced award winning butter with a large market including Astoria, Portland and San Fransisco. Photos and text reflect the creamery growth and prosperity along with its demise.
The exhibit will be on display from June 1 to August 31 at the River Life Interpretive Center at Redmen Hall, 1394 West SR 4, Skamokawa. An opening reception will be held June 1 from 1-3:30 p.m.
