A "Fiery" Landmark Comes Down

A slightly over-forty-year landmark in downtown Mooresville is coming down this month.

 The "Old" Mooresville, Indiana Fire Station
(at the northwest corner of the intersection
between Indiana and Harrison Streets)
Constructed in 1970
Demolished in February, 2013

According to historian James R. Bruner, the firehouse was built in 1970 by volunteers at a cost of $36,000.  That was an amazing bargain, thanks to the volunteer labor.  What did the building look like before demolition?
