64 Stop & Creamery
7596 State Highway 64 (in Leader) Motley MN 56466
The Windmill pattern was chosen because of the windmill located by the creamery where the barn quilt is attached. The creamery was built in 1946 but it was not the first creamery in Leader. There were two other creameries. The first was built in the early 1900’s. Many area farmers brought their milk and cream by horse and wagons before they had Model T cars. That creamery burnt down, so another was built, and it burnt down too! So, in 1946 they decided to “build smarter” using brick. It still stands today –over 70 years later! It almost sounds like the “The little 3 pigs” story!”
Speaking of pigs, if you are in Leader during the summer months, you should check out the LA (Leader Area) Pig Races at the Bears Den which were featured on HGTV! Call to find out days and times.
There is also a museum in Leader that is open on weekends.
64 Stop is a Gas Station / Convenience Store that has unique gifts and delicious ice cream cones!
