KFVS House

Posted Friday, January 25, 2013, at 12:00 AM

KFVS House, 324 Broadway.

Located next to the Hotel Marquette, the brick structure was the home of KFVS radio and television interests from 1938 until it was razed by Oscar Hirsch in March 1961 to make way for a new two-story company headquarters building.

  • The house you identify as the KFVS House looks so much like the building which previously housed Brinkoph-Howell Funeral Home and is now Annie Laurie's Antiques. I tried to read the house number on the steps, but couldn't get it clear enough to make it out. Are you sure that house was at the KFVS location?

  • During the early 1950's (before mall santas) we would go to the KFVS radio station (Hirsh house) to see Santa. The visits were broadcast, so the whole town knew what we wanted for Christmas.
