Keeping up with past and present happenings in a remarkable small town.
Man this picture takes me way back. I got my Firemanship Merit Badge at that building many many years ago and I'm still scouting today at over 60 years old. Thanks for the look back in time.
I wonder,is this the new station on washington street or rhe old one on north street? My uncle was a butler firefighter at the old one.I spent a lot of time there. I remember the coke machine and the "honor system" snack jars.Bob Dorcy
This looks like the old station to me; on North Street. My father would send me there with a quarter for the cigarette machine. A pack of Lucky Strike was 22 cents, so each pack had three pennies wrapped into it.
I WORKED AT THE OLD STATION ON NORTH STREET IN THE EARLY 90'S. THIS IS THE NEW STATION ON WASHINGTON ST.
I used to stop by the old station on North Street often as a youngster in the 1950's. There was usually a dominos game going on, and snacks available. They also had a "good" TV and sports were usually watched there.
In the early 1950's, as television became popular, my family couldn't afford one so the best place for a young boy to go was the main fire station (I think on North Street). Almost every Saturday you would find me there watching sports, and keeping track of the dominoes games the firemen would be always playing. The nicest bunch of men, and usually shared their snacks during the afternoons. Fond memories.
