Property: York Dairy (1949)

Contact:  John Johnson

June 1949

The York Dairy, located three and a half miles northwest of Granton, was destroyed by fire, last Friday. Plans are being made to rebuild the factory, according to Al Breseman, its owner.

The fire damage is estimated at nearly $20,000. Breseman suffered a severe hand laceration and other injuries during the fire.

Breseman plans to build a new one-story factory on the same location. They will use cinder block in the structure with a flat roof.

The York Dairy was handling a run of about 20,000 pounds of milk daily. The Breseman trucks are now hauling the milk to the York Center factory, where facilities are straining to take care of the additional load. Two of the York Dairy factory workers are working with the York Center factory.
