Side A & B | Silver Creek Cheese Factory
The Silver Creek Cheese Factory was located in the heart of the tri-county area known during the 19th century as "Cheesedome". This part of the Western Reserve was best known for the cheese it shipped internationally. The factory contributed to the Aurora processing network, which by 1904 was shipping 4,000,000 pounds of cheese per year. The factory was destroyed by a flood in 1913 as were many other industries which flourished in the Chagrin Valley.

When visiting this marker, be aware that there is no good parking nearby. The maker sits in a valley on private property, and down over a hill off of a busy road. Be sure not to miss it, and not to go when there is three feet of snow (like we did...).
