Many in Vance County were pleasantly surprised to learn that the historic Fire Station #2, built in downtown Henderson in 1908, was recently featured on the Tar Heel Traveler series of WRAL News by reporter Scott Mason.
The clip highlighted the approximately 100-feet tall and over 100 years old clock tower as well as the fire station and adjoining municipal building that once served as the police station complete with the original jail cell.
According to Henderson Fire Chief Steve Cordell, the fire department was honored to be featured and to give a tour to viewers, including a bird’s-eye view of the city from the top of the tower.
While the fire station and municipal building have undergone multiple renovations recently, including redesigned bathrooms and the addition of new offices, much of the property remains original to the year it was built.
