ROSWELL, N.M. (AP) — A building that once housed a historic creamery in southeastern New Mexico is set to be demolished.

The Roswell Daily Record reports that attorney Frank Patterson said this week the Price's Creamery's building in Roswell will be torn down to make room for another business.

Patterson says the building has gone through several hands over the years and recently has had a tough time keeping renters.

Bradley Houston who worked for Price's dairy farms for nearly 50 years says the business grew from a single cow with two boys delivering milk in a little red wagon, to 2,400 cows a day.

But experts say now that dairies move the milk in bulk to large processing plants, small creameries have fallen out of favor in the area.
