Significance: The Fairmont Dairy forms an industrial complex located within the Broadway Historic District, which is eligible for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places. Dairying has been the primary agricultural industry for Brown County throughout the 20th century, and the Fairmont buildings are among the few remaining local indicators of the industry's importance during early years of large scale operations. Fairmont contributed to the local economy through employment of up to 225 persons as well as by purchasing raw goods from area farmers for approximately 65 years. The buildings were built when the Broadway Street district was an active commercial center for the west side of Green Bay, and contributed to the growth of Green Bay as an industrial and distribution center. All those remaining commercial and industrial buildings along the west bank of the Fox River, such as the Fairmont Complex, are now threatened by continuing local efforts to replace aging structures in the deteriorating Broadway Street area.
