Wow, this is going up fast!
See what $6.1 million will buy you? Grafton’s new central fire station on Upton Street is starting to look really impressive. It will eventually replace the current station at 25 Worcester St.
Four big apparatus bays, lots of room to grow along with the rest of Grafton. I can’t wait to see what this place looks like once it’s done.
I need to check with the fire department about their fire horn. When we first moved here, we heard this really odd noise every now and then that we finally realized was the fire station’s alarm. It’s very distinctive, and when I was picking up the kids at South Grafton one day, I finally got to see the thing winding up into action. I held off putting up pictures with the intent of going down and photographing it, but I just haven’t had time lately.
I’ve become rather fond of it.
