was discovered by local artists/artisans in the 1970's,
and is fondly remembered for a colorful 25-year period
as home to number of eccentric and enterprising personalities,
many of who still live and work nearby.
1976, Cristo and Jean-Claude staged their well-known
Running Fence Project, which framed the Creamery and
the Estero on its way to the ocean, in this locale.
8 years ago, it was rescued from disrepair. With that
the work began on the creamery's rebirth as an
extraordinary studio complex.
