1. Wolf Robe Hunt's Indian Trading Post Marker
Inscription.  The Browsery building was constructed c. 1937 as a block of three buildings which hosted many businesses throughout the decades. Its most famous resident, Wayne Henry "Wolf Robe'" Hunt, ran an Indian Trading Post and offered all manner of authentic Indian goods.

Wolf Robe Hunt was a Native American, born in 1905 at Acoma Pueblo in New Mexico. He was an artist of many mediums but became most well-known for his silversmithing and turquoise jewelry. Hunt closed his trading post on 11th Street around 1960 and moved to a new location on Route 66, across from the Blue Whale in Catoosa, OK.

The Browsery was later home to a café and beauty shop, among other business. The building was demolished in 1998.
