For the Insider
This photograph shows the original Concord Dairy that became a co-op in 1921. The first Concord Dairy was located at 84 Washington St. in Concord – heading west it was located on the right-hand side shortly after Lyndon Street. It was on the site of the current parking lot as you approach the UNH/Pierce Law Center. The dairy purchased the 84 Washington St. property, known as the “Gale-Brown” property, in 1921 and renovated it into a dairy plant. Milk delivery was still completed by horse and wagon – at the rear of the Washington Street property was a small stable where five to six horses were kept. The first auto truck was not purchased by Concord Dairy until 1925. The plant was once again remodeled in 1925 and a new pasteurizer was installed.
