Creamery to Apartments In Brandon 1973

The old creamery stood vacant for three years in hopes that a manufacturing firm would use it.  Instead Kay Larson and Connie McHenry are converting the structure into 11 apartments. In the remodeled building the front entrance has been moved to the south side of the building but the north side awning has been left intact.  The creamery was original built in 1929

Connie McHenry claims that she has mastered everything from hauling planks up ladders to painting all the nooks and crannies.  However, she still admits difficulties dumping a loaded wheelbarrow.

Both Connie McHenry and Kay Larson claim that they started with little knowledge of what the entire project involved but both had done extensive remodeling in their own homes.


Kay Larson's only free day away from the project is Wednesday when she and Connie leave their paintbrushes for a needlepoint class in Sauk Centre.

During the week you'll find Don McHenry serving as senior high principal but on the weekends he becomes his wife's chief painter.
