Some History on Creamer's Dairy
In 1928 Charles and Anna Creamer bought the dairy farm from Charles and Belle Hinckley (who had originally started in 1904 and was on 4th avenue until they moved it to it's present spot on College Road in 1915)

The Creamer's spent the '30's and '40's modernizing and expanding their Dairy Farm.  The larger Louden Barn (designed by the Louden Machinery Co. of Iowa)  cost only $13,700 , which was more then the entire dairy farm was worth just 10 years earlier! The barns are still standing to this day.  No longer used to house the 165 tons of hay in the hayloft (that was in the larger barn) or the cows as before though.

Through the 1940's - '50's Creamer's Dairy did very well selling their dairy goodies as well as a non-dairy orange drink.  Imagine having fresh milk, ice cream, sherbet, even cottage cheese, whipping cream, buttermilk and chocolate milk in Fairbanks, Alaska!

They did very well during World War II as they secured a very good contract to sell milk and ice cream to Ladd Air Force Base (which was right up the road from them) But then the post war changes in shipping and the new Alaska Highway opened up, which brought in more competition to the local market and took their toll on their sales in the 1950's.  In 1966 they had to end production

(On a personal note:  My dad worked for the Creamer's and remembers them fondly.
As kids in elementary school, we would go on field trips to watch as the geese flew in for their yearly migration.  Always wished I got to see it as a working dairy farm, but am glad they have kept the farm house, barns and such there as they stood and welcome visitors to watch the geese and sandhill cranes.
