10/28/09 112 W, 1 I - + 9 - 13 Statesville Road Fire Station


Moving onto Mecklenburg County, here's the old station of the Statesville Road Fire Department, one of 30+ volunteer fire departments that served the county at their peak. The department was organized after the community, which depended on Derita and Long Creek for aid, experienced several fires. They formed the fire department within a year, in 1957, and built the station within two years. Statesville Road Fire Department disbanded in 1989, after annexations left little remaining of their territory in northwest Mecklenburg County around Lakeview Road and Highway 115. The old station at 3315 Lake Road presently serves as a community center.  Read more about former fire departments.
