Built 1904 by Joe Thiele (1850-1940), sheep rancher and civic leader. Native stone used here was dug at Willow Creek (2 mi. W).
     First floor housed Runnels County National Bank; upstairs was Miles Opera House-social and cultural center of Town-staging road shows, political rallies, and wrestling bouts. In 1923, school was located here.
     Later this structure was used as dry goods store, grocery, post office, hotel, and (again) a bank.
