01/17/06 49 W - + 19 - 18 Former Firehouses Beyond Wake?


Does anyone have information or even photos of former firehouse buildings outside of Wake County, such as Bahama's old building or Lebanon's old building in Durham County? Or yet-undiscovered old station buildings in Johnston or Harnett counties? Please contribute to the former NC firehouses database.



Cartret- The old Emerald Isle Station 1 on Emerald Dr is not a public Library, I believe.
Johnston- Old Archer Lodge station located on Covered Bridge Rd just south of intersection with Buffalo Rd.
Old Bethany station just north of Shoeheel intersection.
Old Corinth Holder station is located on school property (small two bay building).
Old Four Oaks station on N Baker St just beyond RR tracks going away from business district.
Old Bentonville station (same style) located just up the road. Siren tower is still on it.
Wayne- Old Elroy station located just west of current station (on left heading west).
Old Fork (now Rosewood) station on NC 581 just south of RR tracks on right.

Guilford County – the old Battleground VFD was located at 5103 Michaux Road. This was their second station I believe, I am not aware of the physical address of their first station. They have been pushed even farther north by annexation and have merged with Summerfield VFD (County Stations#9&29). The new Station#11 is located at 6412 Lake Brandt Road.

The old EIFD station #1 was built around 1975, give or take. The first truck was bought new in 1974- it was a 1974 Ford F750 with a John Bean 750 gpm pump and a 500 gallon tank. The particular model was the ‘ECONO-PAC’.
