FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) - One of the most important historic buildings in the city of Fort Wayne is endangered.
Indiana's NewsCenter has learned a demolition permit has been issued for the so-called Farnsworth Factory on Pontiac Street. The building originally housed the Capehart Corporation, which built radios and record changers. It was later sold to Philo Farnsworth, the inventor of electronic television who built TV sets at the site. The building’s also where Philo Farnsworth performed his experiments with nuclear fusion. No word yet on when the structure will be demolished. There are groups in Fort Wayne working to save it.
