When Early Franklin Bellflower came to Perry in the 1930s, he came pushing all his belongings in a wheelbarrow down the railroad tracks. By 1941 he had opened a machine shop at this location offering repair on farm equipment and all makes and models of cars and trucks. In 1942 he added a blacksmith shop and wrecker service and as his business grew, he added a general hardware store. A few years later he built a motel with the profit from all his hard work. After he sold this property in 1971, several businesses existed here until Hye Precision opened in 1981. Hye Precision is a machine shop specializing in custom tooling and automation for various industries, including golf ball manufacturing and aerospace.
