The Moravia Elgin Creamery[2], a sort of franchise operation, was located along the north side of Mill Creek just west of Smith Street (approximately behind the Powers Library).  It was organized in 1899 and went out of business in 1917. Its location can be seen in the panorama view from West Cayuga Street below.
