The Harrisburg Town Council approved the sale of the former Fire Station 2 for $506,150.
After a months-long bidding process, the Harrisburg Town Council approved the sale of the Old Fire Station 2 for over $500,000.
The old station was built as a volunteer fire station back in 1978. It was renovated several times as the need for more personnel increased. The station eventually needed to house full-time firefighters.
It was replaced in 2019 with a building over three times the size just half a mile down the road.

The town council had approved a resolution in September 2020, which allowed the town to begin the process of selling the old station.

Over the course of 10 weeks, the town received more than nine bids from five different companies.
Finance Director Brian Lee presented the winning bid to the council. The winning bid of $506,150 came on Dec. 29. 2020 from Starnes Commercial Properties, LLC and a deposit of $25,307.50 has been received by the Town. Starnes Commercial Properties, LLC already owns property located near the station.
