11/15/11 121 W, 1 I - + 6 - 2 Vintage Photo of Hickory City Hall

Found for sale on eBay, here's a splendid shot of the Hickory Municipal Building back in the day. The postcard is from the Albertype Company in Brooklyn, NY. The building was built or more likely completed in 1922. Charles Hook of Charlotte was the architect. The two-story fire station had two bays. Looks like the fire alarm bell was also atop the structure. The fire department relocated in 1961 and City Hall moved in 1977. At last check, the building was used as a community theater. Hickory also has a second former firehouse in the 1400 block of 1st Avenue SW, old Station 3. Need dates for that one's operation. See Mike's database on former firehouses. Click to enlarge:
