[SIZE=4]FAIRMONT CREAMERY CO.[/SIZE]


anyone know where that's located? I'm having a tough time finding an address or something. I heard it was a great place to take a client for portraits. Thanks!

The Fairmont Creamery Building is located on the NE corner of the Railroad Ave. and "F" Avenue intersection -just east of Central Mall in downtown Lawton.

It's an old, and very dilapidated industrial building with a lot of brick on the facade. I'm not sure how it would serve as a good setting for portrait photography.

The front of the Fairmont building got "tagged" last year by some idiots known for spraying graffiti in several other areas of town, causing lots of property damage. Lawton Police Dept. caught up to the idiots, who turned out to be some young, yet active duty Army personnel. Last I heard, the "leader" of the graffiti gang was facing some rather serious felony charges for the mischief.

At one time, the Fairmont building was going to be converted into a multi-venue night club. But the folks who bought the building simply couldn't get enough money/capital to get the project going.

Lawton's version of "Bricktown" right?

That's hilarious.

People in Lawton are soooooo delusional at times.

Hey, let's take an old condemned warehouse in an industrial park, surrounded by abandoned buildings, and make it into a nightlife hub! It'll be just like Bricktown.

Please, Lawtoonies, just say no to drugs.

The creamery is no longer a run down dilapidated building. In fact the new owners have done a ton of work and devoted a lot of time and money restoring this awesome historical piece of Lawton. Their plans include restaurants, retail shops, and community events on the property, as well as a private residence on the top floor. I commend the Rutherford family for their efforts and look forward to enjoying the all the amenities and activities that will be offered in the Fairmont District when it is complete.
