KGUL-TV Original Transmitter Site

When Channel 11 signed on in 1953, the transmitter was located at what was then Arcadia, described as half way between Galveston and Houston but actually much closer to Galveston. I've just learned that the original building is still standing, although perhaps not for long. Arcadia has since been incorporated in Santa Fe along Highway 6 and the site is just to the east of and behind Santa Fe High, on Tower Road at Maple.

Here's the article on this blog about the launch of KGUL-TV.

I like finding abandoned sites.

This was Channel 8's transmitter site in the 1970's.
