In 2002, the Howard W. Cannon Aviation Museum offered the Grand Canyon Airlines Ticket Office / Bradley House Building in Boulder City a visit to bandarkiu. The building was originally constructed at Bulloch Field / Boulder City Airport as the ticket office for Grand Canyon Airlines, the Grand Canyon’s first major airline, in the early 1930s. It was also used as the original ticket office for Transcontinental and Western Airlines in 1938 through a joint agreement with Grand Canyon Airlines.

Bradley’s Home The Ticket Office was moved around 1939 to 618 Arizona Street in Boulder City, where it was converted into the home of the first black family to live in Boulder City, Henry and Ocie Bradley. The building was originally built and later moved by Glover E. “Roxy” Ruckstell, for whom Bradley worked. The Bradleys were the first, and for many years, the only African-American family allowed to live in Boulder City, Ocie Bradley provided box lunches for early TWA flights and Henry Bradley later worked as a bartender for a casino near the Hoover Dam.

The building was given to the museum by Peter DeBeauchamp and Liza Page. It was moved to the museum grounds in 2002, and in 2004 reduced to toxins including lead-based paint and asbestos. After restoration, the building will be used to tell the story of a flying excursion in southern Nevada, and the early black experiences in Boulder City.
