In 2002, the Howard W. Cannon Aviation Museum was offered the Grand Canyon Airlines Ticketing Office / Bradley House Building in Boulder City. The building was originally built at the Bulloch Field/Boulder City Airport as the ticket office for Grand Canyon Airlines, the first large Grand Canyon sightseeing airline, in the early 1930s. It was also used as the original ticketing office for Transcontinental and Western Airlines in 1938 through a joint agreement with Grand Canyon Airlines.
The Ticketing Office was moved about 1939 to 618 Arizona Street in Boulder City, where it was converted into a home for 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 the Bradley’s worked. The Bradleys were the first, and for many years the only, African-American family to be allowed to live in Boulder City, Ocie Bradley provided box lunches for early TWA flights and Henry Bradley later worked as a bartender for the casino near 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 was abated for toxics including lead-based paint and asbestos. After restoration, the building will be used to tell the story of sightseeing flyin in southern Nevada, and the early black experience in Boulder City.
