Apparently built in the late 1950s on land owned by the Tilley family, these were offices at the front of a wholesale operation as the dairy industry consolidated - both in North Carolina and nationally.  Sealtest was a brand of National Dairy Products Corporation - later known as Kraft Foods.

The brick-fronted building may have been standing as recently as the early 2000s, but was definitely cleared by at least 2007, when the present McDonald's on the site was being built.
