The Henderson Chamber of Commerce and the Boulder City Chamber of Commerce will be holding a joint networking mixer at the Clark County Museum in celebration of the museum’s 50th Anniversary.
Commissioner James Gibson will be our special guest and Mark Hall-Patton will be there to share plenty of entertaining and enlightening stories about our city and Southern Nevada.
In conjunction with the April Mixer, the HCC Foundation has created a Community Day event to assist the Clark County Museum Guild in raising the $20,000 still needed to complete the restoration of the Grand Canyon Airlines Ticket Office – Bradley House Restoration Project.
Built in the early 1930s, the building was originally used as the Grand Canyon Airlines Ticketing Office. In 1939 they built a new terminal, which still stands and is today used as the Elks Lodge on Boulder Highway.
When the new terminal was built, the old building was set down at 618 Arizona Street. Here it became the first home of Henry and Ocie Bradley, the first black family to live in Boulder City.
The restoration of this historic building will be used to tell the story of sightseeing flying in southern Nevada and the early black experience in Boulder City.
