Orig­i­nal head­quar­ters build­ing his­tory

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - NORTHWEST ARKANSAS -

The build­ing was orig­i­nally con­structed around 1920 and for­merly the home of the Spring­dale Pro­duce Co., which was owned and op­er­ated by John W. Tyson, John Tyson’s grand­fa­ther. A fire dam­aged the build­ing in the early 1950s but it was razed and re­built in 1952 and be­came home to Tyson’s Feed & Hatch­ery un­til 1969 when the com­pany, now known as Tyson Foods, moved to its cur­rent lo­ca­tion, 2200 W. Don Tyson Park­way, ac­cord­ing to Worth Spark­man, Tyson’s ex­ter­nal com­mu­ni­ca­tions spokesman.
