The Dairy and its Family

When the Page Dairy Company closed in 1975, it was the second oldest dairy in the city.  The business had operated at Wade and Knapp streets since it was founded 62 years earlier by Henry A. Page, Sr.

Arnold Page and his brother, Henry, took over after their father died in 1950. Arnold was vice president and took charge of operations. Henry was president and was in charge of sales and the business side.

The dairy by the mid-1970s was coping with increased costs, limits on what it could charge retailers for milk, and a steady drop nationwide of milk consumption.  The final blow was a decision by A&P to close more than half its stores in the Ohio, Michigan, and Indiana areas served by Page.

Henry Page, Jr. died April 26, 2007 at age 91.  Arnold died November 2, 2008 at age 84.
