History of the Dairy StoreTOP

In 1905, the LSU Creamery was established on the site where the new State Capitol is now.

In 1925, the creamery was moved to the new LSU campus. It was located in the basement of Coates Hall.
 
In 1929 the creamery was moved to a building that was to be used for laundry but never was used for that purpose. It was remodeled to be used as a creamery, and a sales room was opened in it as well.

When WWII broke out, enrollment declined and the creamery faced a labor shortage. When certain foods were rationed because of the war, a flood of Baton Rouge citizens flocked to the LSU Creamery sales room to buy dairy products. Because of increased demand and decreased labor, the store was forced to close.
 
In 1956, that the creamery was moved to where it is now.

In 1972, the store was reopened as the Dairy Store. Products such as milk, ice cream, cottage cheese and cheddar cheese were sold.

In 1982, the store entered into a joint project with the SGA and became known as the Market Place. Sandwiches, dipped ice cream, shakes and malts were added.

In 1984, the project was discontinued and in the spring of 1990, Dairy Science Department students remodeled the store to provide seating for the customers.
