Soulful sounds make music at Iron Works
Placeholder Image
Gainesville Iron Works was a fixture on South Main Street for more than a century. It began as a foundry and was purchased by R.I. Mealor in 1897. It remained in the Mealor family until 1961 when R.H. Thompson and V.C. Puckett bought the business and expanded it, eventually moving part of the operation to Oakwood.
