Inscription.

This building, commonly known as the Hadley Building, was constructed in 1904 within Indian Territory, the same year that the Wright Brothers successfully flew an airplane at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina and three years prior to Oklahoma's admission as the 46th State of the Union in 1907. Sitting directly on historical Route 66, this building is amongst the oldest in the city of Miami. This building was purchased and restored by Erik and Sarah Johnson in 2005.
