Also known as the Meadow Gold Block, the Beatrice Creamery Company's Lincoln Plant began as a local ice business, but soon burgeoned into a successful local creamery operation. The complex exemplifies the company's meteoric expansion in the early 20th century based on innovations in transportation and collection of raw material, processing, packaging, and marketing. The large complex, just one of Beatrice's several major creameries in the region, is associated with the company's early growth and on-going stake in the city that launched it.
