#34 - Messina’s Shoe and Boot Repair
This building, constructed in 1888, was the site of Wall Drug Store. In 1917, the store was sold to John and Mamie Spinks and later to Angus McNutt, who operated a Rexall Drug Store. This was the site occupied the office of Mayor William D. Tate, who is the longest-serving mayor in Grapevine history, serving more than 30 years. On the exterior of the building, Sam Messina’s unique, historic hanging shoe sign was constructed in 1947 and has been in Grapevine since 1977.
