Would you believe a Bull Head Fire Department? This one's also in Greene County, between Snow Hill and Stantonsburg. How 'bout that building adornment! Guess we'd be better include a few puns to complete the fun. Wouldn't want to steer you wrong, or put my reputation at steak. Hopefully this posting is well done, lest we descend into udder silliness. (Not exactly a meaty topic, mind you, but that's rare. Just don't grill me about it.) Click to enlarge:

We pass it all the time heading to the beach!

I pass it a couple of times a week. Only once have I seen there trucks or for that matter anybody there. I do know they were broken into a couple of years ago and had a bunch of equipment stolen. No Bull

The Bull Head VFD is in the Bull Head community of Greene Co. The name comes from the Revolutionary War period when a land owner turned his prize bull out of the pasture when the British were coming, rather than have them take the bull. Legend is that that bull charged the Red Coats who then shot him, cut off his head and mounted it on a fence post on the owner’s land. I heard this story many times when growing up in Snow Hill.

I more like Meat Camp VFD in Watauga Co. Just down the hill from Elk Knob State Park. I understand they’re building a new firehouse. I’ll see if I can get some pics next time I go out that way.

Its almost as good as the Buckhead Fire dept in Columbus co. who have a deer head adorning their station out front.

There is Skull Camp Fire Dept. in Low Gap,NC. But I don,t think they have a Skull on the front of the station.
