05/16/12 230 W, 1 I - + 8 - 4 Historic Firehouses of Raleigh


Let's apply the travel treatment to our own town, shall we? Here are the historic and former fire department buildings in Raleigh. The oldest dates to the volunteer years, with the Capital Hose House built in 1887. Then leap to the 20th Century, with a number of former firehouses, including the rear of what was once called Memorial Auditorium. The oldest fire department building still in service is the old alarm house behind in Station 1. See the photos by Legeros, all of which were taken a couple years ago. Will do a fresh photo tour one of these months! Read more history about these buildings.
