The Shakers stored milk in the creamery to keep it cool. Milk was brought from the barn in large milk cans, which were then kept cool in troughs filled by water diverted from the creek. Later the building was used as a hen house; now it is used for broom-making demonstrations.
The Creamery was located midway between the cow barn and dairy rooms in the basement of the Sisters' Shop. A stone bridge crossed Shaker Creek where the wooden footbridge is today, connecting these locations.
