01/22/10 115 W, 4 I - + 8 - 14 Guilford College Fire Stations

For your Friday enjoyment, here are four photos of three Guilford College Fire Department stations from back in the day. They're from Guilford County Annual Reports from 1958 and 1971, and the November-December issue of Hose & Nozzle. GCFD was the first rural department in Guilford County, and one of the first in the state. The first station at Guilford College Road and Savoy Lane operated from 1949 to 1970, and was relocated to the three-bay building below at 201 College Road. Their second station operated on Inman Road from the 1950s to the 1980s. Need better dates on these. Readers please share your knowledge. Or, read a bit of GCFD history. Click to enlarge:

The two buildings on Guilford College Road are still standing. Is the Inman Road structure still there?
