The Union City Creamery was established in July 1901 as a
co-operative enterprise between fifty local farmers and a handful of businessmen on capitol stock of $10,000. In 1902, the model plant managed by Mrs. C. B. Spoor averaged milk
receipts of 12,000 lbs. from surrounding farms while churning out 500 lbs. of butter daily. Local butter brought the highest "fancy" prices in Cleveland and Philadelphia. The property was most recently Union City Industries Lab.
