The State College Agricultural Extension Service encouraged the establishment of the Pine State Creamery as a dairy farmers' cooperative at the end of World War I. The dairy products plant is a two-story Art Moderne design in cream-colored brick. The building fronts Tucker Street and Glenwood Avenue, where a three-story tower accents the corner. A 1940s addition at the south end nearly doubled the building's size; a second addition and two wings date from the 1960s. The company closed in 1996 and the buildings have been renovated for commercial use.
