The Wake New Hope Volunteer Fire Department turned fifty this fall. They were chartered on September 11, 1956. Their first pumper was a GMC / ________ purchased after two years of fundraising. Their first fire station was part of a building at the northeast corner of Louisburg and (then) New Hope Road, directly across the street from the lot where their new station was soon constructed. They were the second rural department of the 1950s created "outside" of a municipality, after Six Forks but ahead of Western Boulevard and Stony Hill.
