Built in 1945 as the Latta Co-operative Dairy, established by Harold F. Latta. It was equipped with a pasteurizer, a buttermilk pasteurizer, automatic bottler, ice cream freezer, and a large cold storage room.
It became part of the Long Meadow Farms Cooperative in 1950. It almost became the first ABC store in Orange County, but the commissioners voted against it.
From December 1965 to 1971 it was the Graham Production Credit Association. From 1971 to 1983 it was the Central Production Credit Association. From 1983 to 1986 it was the North Central Production Credit Association. From 1986 to 1991 it was the South Atlantic Production Credit Association. In 1991, the South Atlantic Production Credit Association merged to become North Central Farm Credit. In 1999 North Central Farm Credit and two other credit unions merged to form Carolina Farm Credit, which sold the property in 2021.

This one-story, side-gabled, Colonial-Revival-style brick commercial building is three bays wide and double-pile with a full-width, frame, flat-roofed rear ell. The building has a Flemish-bond brick veneer, a denticulated cornice, a slate roof, and a thirty-two-light display window centered on the façade with a wide header. Six-panel doors on each end of the façade are slightly recessed in wide plain surrounds. There are six- over-six wood-sash windows on the side elevations and replacement one-light half-round windows in the gables. The rear ell has vinyl siding and nine-over-nine wood-sash windows. The building does not appear on the 1943 Sanborn map; Bellinger dates the building to 1945.
