Nickels / McClure Home
Steve Nicholson says, "What is the address of this house? I used to know of a mansion on Locust street, but I thought it was called the Ensor mansion. South side of Locust in yellow brick."
NW Okie says, "The census that I saw showed the address of the Nickels home as 1315 Locust Street. Yes! It was also the home of Dr. Ensor at one time and is located between 13th & 14th Street, on south side of Locust Street, and has a tennis court that sets along side 14th Street, if I remember correctly."

Comments: I remember my mother telling me about the Enser home (before I was old enough to remember much) that movie star John Agar, whom was engaged to Shirley Temple at that time, was stationed at Alva's prisoner of war camp. He invited Shirley to come and see him and asked the Enser's if she could stay with them. They felt that their home was unworthy of Shirley Temple, so she didn't come to Alva. I always thought it was such a beautiful place and had been to their house when my children were little. I loved going through the house and I am so glad that someone is going to restore it. It would be tragic if lost, like the railroad station and a few other things in Alva. ~Ann Marie Beagley Hughes 2009-11-17 14:55:16
