The Greenfield Fire Department is working to preserve the history of a 85-year-old fire station as its demolition draws closer, reports Greenfield Recorder.
Among the artifacts that will be salvaged from the fire station are the cupola and weather vane, a 1936 cornerstone, the copper downspouts and decorative leader, and the 9/11 memorial.
Meanwhile, construction of the temporary fire statio is on track for the department to move into by mid- to late August. The city expects to use the temporary station for about two years.
Not all of the details have been worked out in terms of how and where different artifacts will be incorporated into the new structure — or instead displayed for viewing.
