Just a few days after demolition began on the oldest section of the Middle Tennessee Medical Center building on Highland Avenue, crews began to tear down the old Red Rose Dairy building.

The Red Rose Dairies building, on the corner of College and Lytle streets, has stood empty for years and suffered from neglect.

The Morgan Green family operated the dairy, particularly known for its ice cream, for decades.  The building is Art Deco in style and was home to a locally owned coffee shop for many years.
