Waltrip Radio Chapel (now KIMT TV3)

-A A +A
now KIMT TV3
1938, 1954. 122 N. Pennsylvania Ave.

This white stucco Streamline Moderne building has an interesting history. It started out as the radio station of evangelist Reverend Burrough A. Waltrip; then in 1940 it became a Baptist church. In 1954 it returned to radio (with the addition of television) as station KGLO. The marquee has been remodeled. The various satellite dishes on the roof and on the grounds do not add much to the aesthetics of the building.
