From a reader, here's a picture of Charlotte's old Dilworth Fire Station, which has been revitalized and renovated as the Re Salon and Med Spa. The historical two-story story served as Station 2 from 1909 to 1948. The building's site was in the cross hairs of developers in 2010, but a Facebook campaign followed by a letter-writing campaign helped save the building from demolition. The salon and spa opened at the end of 2010. Here are some press stories about them (scroll to bottom of page). Their web site also tells a bit about the building's history, and features this documentary from 2010 named If These Bricks Could Talk. Thanks for the photo, Andrew!

Fantastic video! I went in what is now the hair salon, and the new owners have done a nice job preserving our history. Above the check out desk, there are two nice poster displays commemorating the fire department and telling the history of this building. They have also kept the original brass fire pole, and there are a couple of old brass nozzles in the waiting area.
