11/15/11 197 W, 3 I - + 9 - 3 More Former Fire Stations

Speaking of former firehouse buildings, reader Lee Kennedy has passed along these photos from the eastern side of the state They're queued for addition to my former firehouse database. Top photo is the old Hickory Grove fire station in Bladen County, located in Highway 210 near Highway 701, near Garland. Building appears to be an old school, which a sliding-track door down the middle. Two bays on right, and one one the left, facing the highway. Their new station is to the left of this building, facing Highway 201. Dates of service not known.

Bottom left is the old Chadbourn-Klondyke fire station in Columbus Station, located in the 200 block of East 1st Avenue. They've moved across the street to a nine-bay (!) building in the 200 block of N. Wilson Avenue. Dates of service not known. The old building is occupied by the public works department, with bays converted into doors and used by a Masonic Lodge or similar organization. Bottom right is the old Vandemere fire station in Pamlico County, located on Pennsylvania Avenue. Their new station is on the same streets, a few blocks down. Dates of service not known. Thanks Lee!
