TULSA — Tom Wallace’s friends warned him against buying and renovating an abandoned warehouse in the Brady District for his engineering firm.
Brady District has long history
The Brady District is one of Tulsa’s oldest neighborhoods. It is named after Wyatt Tate Brady, who arrived in Tulsa in 1890 as a shoe salesman and quickly opened one of the town’s first mercantile stores. Brady was one of the original incorporators of Tulsa. He was a longtime Tulsa promoter and developer whose legacy includes the district’s famed Cain’s Ballroom. To learn more about the Brady District, go to www.thebradydistrict.com.
