"As Oklahoma City expanded, the central business district spread north and west. As a result of this movement, a three-story brick structure was built at the corner of Main and Hudson in 1920. Known as the Shops Building, the structure housed a variety of retail stores. In 1928 Frank P. Johnson, president of the American National Bank, purchased the building and added eight more levels. Later, the structure was acquired by Wilber E. Hightower, Johnson's son-in-law. Today, the ornate building appears much as it did in 1929." (Blackburn, Henderson and Thurman 69)
