Took a trip to Wilmington last week. Local history library visit. Copied quite a few things, including these phone book listings. Four decades of fire departments in the Wilmington area. A number of them no longer exist. The New Hanover County Fire Department in the 1950 listing was the first version of a county-run (or at least county-sponsored) fire department. It didn't last past the decade. Other former fire departments in the listings are Scotts Hill FD (Pender), Seagate FD, South Wilmington FD, and Winter Park FD. Read more about former departments.
