Oglethorpe landmark razed

May 3, 2007

Albany -- The old Pet Dairy on Oglethorpe Boulevard came down Thursday. Property owner June B. Smith was contacted by the city and asked to tear down the building.

The building was leveled, now clean up is underway.

The abandoned structure had been empty for years, with the exception of vagrants and drug users.

Bruce Peters says at one time the Dairy was a common stop for school kids. "Used to come over here when he was a kid, and they'd give tours and stuff. It was the greatest thing in the world."

The building owner agreed to tear down the structure after being contacted by the city.
