Winter scene in northern Wake County. Station 1 of the Stony Hill Fire Department. Or tonight only, Snowy Hill. They are 52 years young this year, having organized in 1958. They capped a decade of rural fire department development. During the fabulous 1950s, these departments formed, the first rural departments in Wake County: Apex Rural, Garner, Zebulon Rural, Knightdale, Cary Rural, Fuquay-Varina Rural, Morrisville, Wake Forest Rural, Six Forks Road, Wake-New Hope, Western Boulevard, Wendell Rural, Rolesville, and Stoney Hill. There was an "e" in their name back then. Click to enlarge:
