MRS name came from owners, Jack Murdock, Croumbie Roberts, and Richard Ivy (Dick) Smith Jr. from 1933 until 1938 when it was moved to Bridge Street in Leaksville, NC. A contest was held to rename the dairy, and it was renamed Meadow Dairies because of the large meadow located in front of the original house.
