In 1922, Dorothy Kraker set up a simple white roadside stand on Crystal Lake and began selling farm-sized pies made with tart cherries picked from the family orchard. A century later, The Cherry Hut has become a nationally acclaimed full-service restaurant, famous for its cherry pies, jams, ice cream, homemade sandwiches, and much more.
This 100th-anniversary book includes historic photos, quirky stories, and a by-decade timeline of how The Cherry Hut evolved over ten decades. it also includes an accounting of everyone – owners and employees alike – who invested their talent and energy into making The Cherry Hut a sweet success.
