Wolfenbüttel-Wendessen, altes Spritzenhaus

PugioLeonis
The former building of Wendessen's volunteer fire brigade was built in 1874. In the early years, it housed not only the firemen's gear, but also the undertaker's hearse! After the firefighters abandoned the building in 1976, local council voted to tear it down. But the villagers did not want to see yet another piece of their history destroyed, and so they raised money and worked hard to restore it to its original beauty. ----- (Update: 2011-09-29) #Deutschland #Fachwerk #Feuerwehr #fire_brigade #firefighters #halftimbered #Landkreis_Wolfenbüttel #Niedersachsen #Stadt_Wolfenbüttel #timberframe
