Brick By Brick – CCH New Firehouse Almost Complete

   Written by on July 3, 2017 at 11:37 am

The new Charlotte Court House volunteer fire department building is nearing completion. Its central location will help the department respond quickly in all directions. The new building is white. In order to help it blend in with the historic character of Charlotte Court House, plans are proceeding to brick it. The chosen brick matches that on the David Bruce Building(the old Health Department) in size and shape. The mortar color will be the same as well. The details over the windows and doors will be copied from those at Randolph-Henry with a buff keystone center. The present challenge is funding the project.
The department needs your support! Will you help them –brick by brick–to cover the building? The fire department works very hard to protect the town and county and this is a way to give back to them. Five dollars will purchase two bricks. Over 20,000 bricks are needed to complete this project. Donations may be mailed to the CCH Town Office, PO Box 246, Charlotte CH, VA 23923 and designated for this project.
If you would like to make a donation in memory or honor of someone special, note that on your donation. A display will be created in the fire house documenting these gifts. Be generous! Let’s step up and help out our volunteer fire fighters.
