The abattoir opened on 5 December 1906. The Palmerston North Borough Council took the business over as a municipal venture in 1917, until in April 1951 it was handed over to a company of butchers to lease. It was demolished in 1969 and the land subdivided for housing in the rapidly growing Awapuni area of Palmerston North.
