According to the Le Roy Historical Society, the original building was constructed in the 1820s and was one of the first locations on Main Street. The earliest settlers of Le Roy built the Creekside from black Marcellus shale dug from the Oatka Creek bed. It has served as a hat factory, a bank office, and the private home of several individuals – Percy Hooker, Harold Cleveland, and Dr. Knoll – before becoming a bar and restaurant.
In October 2004, a fire all but destroyed it. Bill and Billy Farmer acquired the building in 2007, with the goal of salvaging as much of the original structure as possible. Ten years later, the fully restored and expanded Farmer’s Creekside Tavern & Inn re-opened its doors in July 2017.
