11/01/06 97 W, 1 I - + 15 - 18 State Hospital Fire Station

Mike has returned from his belated honeymoon to Asheville and Banner Elk with a few things to share. First is this, the former fire station at Broughton Hospital in Morganton. The structure is circa 1950s. The fire department, which dates to the turn of the century, was dissolved in the 1970s. The fire station occupied at least two prior buildings. Early apparatus included a 1920s American LaFrance triple combination back in the day. There are a couple great old photos and artifacts in the Administration Building lobby.
