The mission of the Raleigh Historic Development Commission is to identify, preserve, protect, and promote Raleigh’s historic resources.
(former) Pine State Creamery
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.
