According to Images of America: Somers, from the Somers Historical Society:

"The Somers Creamery at 32 South Road is now a private home. It was operated by E.B. Little and later by a Mr. Cushman. Milk was collected locally and ice cream was made and transported by trolley to Enfield. The business was purchased by H.P. Hood & Company and moved to Springfield in 1925."

Yes I think you are right. I live in Az. Now but am back in Ct. Often to see family. I think it is a yarn store now. That seafood place was top notch!!

Yes...the seafood restaurant, Valley Fish Mkt, had the best crabcakes ever! Live in Rhode Island now...but I do get back to Ellington for a visit now and then. Shout out to my friends and family in Ellington and Somers.
