History

This four story building, brick with limestone trim, contains 53,950 square feet and is surrounded by plants for decoration and for study. The building is named for Benjamin W. Kilgore who served a number of administrative positions, including dean of the School of Agriculture, director of the Agricultural Experiment Station and first director of the Agricultural Extension Service. He started his career at NC State after moving from Mississippi where he studied chemistry at Mississippi State University and Johns-Hopkins University.

When pasteurized milk was required for troops stationed at nearby Camp Polk in World War I, Kilgore established the Pine State Creamery in Raleigh. He was active as president of both the National Association of Agricultural College Chemists and the Cotton Growers Cooperative Association. Kilgore was also editor of The Progressive Farmer from 1923-1933 and is remembered for promoting cooperative action among the farmers of North Carolina.
