History Holley Creamery

Holley Creamery

The following is taken from The History of Horsham by Craven.

The Holley Creamery still stands as a residence in Prospectville on the Limekiln Pike. The Creamery was built during the middle of the nineteenth century. The local farmers would sell their milk to the creamery and there it would be made into butter. A horse on a turntable was used to churn the butter. In its later years, steam power replaced the horse and turntable as a source of power. Behind the creamery was a large pond about one acre in size. During the winter, it would freeze and the ice would be cut and stored in the ice house. In that way ice would be available for the rest of the year, so the milk and the butter would not spoil.

In the 1920’s the ice house was demolished. By 1914 the creamery was no longer in business and the building was converted to a dwelling.
