Nice to see a classic old station saved rather than meet the wreckers ball.
Richmond Va Truck 2's old house at Grace and 18th Streets...built in 1884, vacated in 1952, and empty for decades...is being refurbished and will become office space, from what I was told.
The contractor is going to great lengths...including research...to bring the building back to it's original appearance (Or close as the more modern bay door rather than the original swing-open doors are being utilized) and is utilizing many original fixtures such as doors and the original stairway banister in the restoration. Windows have already been returned to the original appearance.
Made my day when i saw it...Hopefully I'll have pics of it before the weeks out.
