The Hendy Guesthouse was built around the turn of the 20th Century in the early 1900s by the entrepreneurial industrialist John Hendy after the 1906 earthquake from whence he relocated Joshua Hendy Iron Works from San Francisco to Sunnyvale and bolstered Sunnyvale into a thriving economic community 100 years ago. Hendy Iron Works was the largest Steel Mill and Foundry on the West Coast manufacturing both Heavy Equipment for the Mining Industry during the California Gold Rush, and massive 137 ton Marine Steam Engines during WWI. The Hendy “California” Stamp Mill of 1918 is prominently Displayed across the street at the Martin Murphy Jr. Historical Park.

The two story Hendy Guesthouse features a cherry mahogany Parlor and Wine Bar, a formal colonial Dining room with art deco faux finish, a country style Kitchen, lattice ceiling in the Penthouse, intricate tile work in 4 baths, wainscot and original hardwood floors and doors radiate the simplicity and beauty of this sentimental community asset.
