1. Anderson Historic Fire Station Marker
Inscription. Originally constructed in 1903 on this site as a two-story building, the Anderson Fire Station was completed for a cost of $90 for used lumber and nails.
Initial firefighting equipment included twelve buckets, four axes, three sections of hose and a hand drawn hose cart. The first motorized fire equipment purchased for the station was a 1924 Dodge chemical truck, which was sold for scrap for the war effort in 1943. This was replaced by the 1941 and 1946 Van Pelt trucks, which are still housed in the station.
