Inscription.  This facility is a replica of the Mackey House, originally erected on the southwest corner of Greenwood Avenue and Easton Street. The original two story wood structure was destroyed during the Race Riot of 1921.

Sam and Lucy Mackey were determined to rebuild on the same site and to build a house of masonry construction that could not be destroyed by fire. The masonry house was completed in 1927.

This replica of the Mackey House has been named the Mabel B. Little Heritage House, honoring Mrs. Little, a pioneer who moved to Tulsa during the year 1913 and owned and operated a beauty shop located on Greenwood Avenue then known as the "Black Wall Street of America".
