"The coming of the hand separator and machine-turned churns greatly faciliated the industry, and later the Glendale Creamery Co. owned by Mr. Ladd of Portland, Oregon, built a creamery at Dungeness which was managed first by Dave Troy of Chimacum and this was the first commercial creamery of note in Clallam County. Will Clark uncle of Elliot Clark, later managed the creamery for a number of years, and this creamery finally came into the possession of the Dungeness-Sequim Cooperative Creamery, an organization of farmers of the Dungeness Valley and was successfully managed for many years by James Dick, and Jim Lotzgesell, his successor."
From PIONEER DAYS AT OLD DUNGENESS by Mrs. George Lotzgesell

Later in its life, the building became the Dungeness Tavern, run by Bettie Duncan. In September of 2011, Nash’s Organic Produce opened a full grocery store at the location.
