Hendricks Machine Shop Water Valley
It is also listed in the 1918 publication Penton's Foundry List: Directory of the Gray and Malleable Iron, Steel, Brass and Aluminum Foundries in the United States and Canada.
The 1931 Watermelon Carnival Parade featured two floats by the Hendricks Machine Shop. In 2006, the building (apparently only briefly) housed the Grand Central Station Antiques and Tearoom. In 2010, it was purchased by Bill McGregor and "recently renovated" in 2011, winning Water Valley Main Street Association's "Saving Heritage Award." A studio for stained glass was housed in the building in April 2011. In December 2011, it was listed for sale, but "set off-market" in February 2012.
