Kids Learn About Elsie
Elementary students visit the Arcade Historical Society at the end of every school year. This year we talked to them about how "cheese built the Gibby House" - via Mr. Gibby's cheese factories - as well as two other important milk industries in Arcade, the Merrell-Soule and Borden's powdered milk plants. As we all know, there are more cows than people in Wyoming County, NY and milk products have always been a big export. Pictured here is a page from Borden's 100 year anniversary comic book for children.
