More than 100 “Then & Now” stories and photos that were researched, written, and published by our Historical Society between 2010-2015 can be accessed in our Museum’s reference library. Artifacts supporting these stories also can be viewed in our Museum which will reopen for a special event on Saturday, April 18, 2020. Thereafter, the Museum will be open the Second Saturday of each month (May-November) from 10 AM to 1 PM.
For your enjoyment and enlightenment, following are some current "Then & Now" photos and captions of landmark structures in Pickerington-Violet Township.
1927: THE PICKERINGTON CREAMERY, 80 W. Church Street, was owned by Arthur Good. During its peak, the Creamery was the largest employer in the area, with a crew of 200 working 24/7. It was the largest buttermaker in Ohio, churning its famous "Mayflower" brand as well as 70-some other labels/brands of butter.
