8 Landmark Properties

For the past 50 years, Kuvera has invested in its communities by acquiring properties, building facilities, and operating successful businesses

Branson, MO

Kuvera bought the 13-acre Grand Palace property in 2014. Vacant since 2008, this premium spot in the center of the Highway 76 Entertainment District sorely needed redevelopment. We commissioned eight market studies over four years to formulate a five-phase master plan for the Branson Boardwalk entertainment complex. The project aligns with the city’s vision of attracting younger families to this popular tourist destination.

Branson, MO

Kuvera bought the Music Road Mall in 2014 and became the lessor to its existing tenants. The purchase of this property, just east of the Hollywood Wax Museum Entertainment Center, was part of our long-term plan to keep improving the visual appeal of Highway 76. We refurbished the building and added a 30 ft tall, guitar-shaped sign as a nod to Branson’s rich history of live music entertainment.

Branson, MO

In 2012, we were able to acquire the 1.23-acre parcel where the Hollywood Wax Museum has welcomed guests since 1996. This paved the way for Kuvera to partner with the city and launch the first portion of the new pedestrian promenade. The project included landscaping and the addition of fun and memorable photo-ops to enhance the visitor experience.

Pigeon Forge, TN

To build on Kuvera’s presence in the Smoky Mountains, we bought the defunct National Antique Mall & Freedom Museum on the main parkway between Sevierville and Gatlinburg in 2010. Our vision was to create a multi-attraction center that could be combined with a new wax museum nearby. We built an eye-catching castle, housing two popular attractions and later added a third tourist favorite.

Pigeon Forge, TN

With a total of five acres available for development, we simultaneously built the castle and our largest Hollywood Wax Museum, featuring a 40,000-pound ape towering 102 feet above the 14-mile Parkway. By creating this new landmark, we contributed to the establishment of a bustling tourist hub along the stretch near Showplace Blvd.

Branson, MO

In 2010, Kuvera purchased a dilapidated motel next door to its Hollywood Wax Museum Entertainment Center in the heart of the Highway 76 Entertainment District. We developed a Hollywood-themed, 18-hole mini-golf course, which earned a Branson Beautification Award for transforming this property into a spectacular venue that is exciting and appealing to visitors.

Hollywood, CA

When Kuvera bought the historic Hollywood Theater in the late 1980s, the building on Hollywood Boulevard sat in disrepair and was slated for demolition. Creating a Guinness franchise in this prime spot helped revitalize the area, and our attraction continues to be a popular family-friendly destination.

Thousand Oaks, CA

With the original Hollywood Wax Museum doing well, Kuvera was ready to diversify and expand its assets. The emerging mini-storage industry seemed to be a good investment. Market research pointed us toward Thousand Oaks, a growing suburb of Los Angeles. Since 1979, Hollywood Storage Center has expanded with the community, and now offers 295,965 sq ft of storage units on 9.85 acres.
