03/25/13 122 W, 1 I - + 1 - 3 Chestnut Hill Fire Company Organized, 1905

Also from Salisbury is documentation of the organization date of the Chestnut Hill Fire Company, which protected the unincorporated community of Chestnut Hill located outside Salisbury. The fire company was named Southside, and competed and won in state fireman's tournaments as early as 1907 and as late as 1912. The Southside Reel Team appears in North Carolina State Fireman's Association convention proceedings from 1914, and is listed with the Salisbury Fire Department in proceedings from 1915. The Fire Chief and Asst. Chief in 1911 were G. C. Kluttz and Asst. Chief as J. G. Reeves. Salisbury Fire Chief Bob Parnell passes along this research by Betty Dan Spencer. Memo to self, updated my former fire department database accordingly. Click to enlarge:
