TitleFire Destroys an Old Church: Condemned Building at 1501 Broadway Is in Flames an Hour
AbstractPhoto, caption, and article about the destruction by fire of the "2-story stone building at 1501 Broadway, once the home of one of Kansas City's oldest churches." Built in 1902 as "the third home of the Second Presbyterian church, which now [1964] is at [56th Street] and Oak streets."
NotesPage 3: "The original Second Presbyterian church was built at [8th Street] and Wyandotte streets in 1866. As its congregation grew, a new church was built in 1882 at [13th Street] and Central streets. It was destroyed in the Convention Hall fire of 1900. After 10 years at [15th Street] and Broadway, the church was moved to the South Side to serve the growing congregation. In 1916, after the structure was sold to the Dunlap Laundry & Coat Supply Co., the building was remodeled."
