Hendy Exhibit

Hendy-Westinghouse-Northrop Grumman 1906 to 2015

June – October, 2015

This exhibit showcased this important industrial site built by Joshua Hendy Iron Works when they relocated to Sunnyvale after the 1906 earthquake destroyed their plant in San Francisco.  The plant has since been owned by Westinghouse and now by Northrop Gumman. This temporary exhibit included items on loan from the Iron Man Museum located at the plant site off Hendy Ave. between Sunnyvale Ave. and Fair Oaks Ave.
