03/06/12 127 W, 1 I - + 8 - 2 Four Hundred Old Firehouses and Counting!

Been a year or more since we updated our database of historic and former firehouses in North Carolina. We've counted 400 of the things, maybe more. You can check my math. The criteria is simple: any building still standing that's a closed firehouse, or an active fire station that's 50 years or older. Blog readers and site visitors have been contributing for years.

Time for another round of reviewing. If you're interested, please lend a hand. Help is needed with a number of street addresses and specific locations. Ditto for dates. Plus any buildings not yet listed. Send photos as well! All corrections and additions are most welcome. Thanks in advance for your help. Obsession is good. Click once or twice to enlarge:

Mike, that would make great poster to raise money.

I wondered if you had Gastonia’s old St.1, as I was there yesterday and snapped a couple photos in case you didn’t.
