The local canning company was located at 505 SW A St. just south of the train depot, but the business extended all the way to Main Street. It was built about 1926 as a canning company for Roscoe Stewart of Springfield, Mo. The original name was Mid-Mountain Canning Company and was operated under that name until 1936 when A. C. Beck, Charles Henderson, and Fred Douglas purchased the company. At that time the name was changed to Bentonville Canning Company which operated till 1954. When this building was built, it was said to be fireproof, but on May 10, 1960, the building did catch fire. At that point, the building housed Western Byproducts, which processed feather products. Three firetrucks from Bentonville responded to the fire as well as two Rogers fire trucks. The fire wasn't extinguished until the next day.
