Built in the 1970’s, the building has served the Nation well. But with the construction of the new firehouse, Tsha’ thoñswatha across the street and the improvements to the rest of the AC field underway, the old fire barn was scheduled to be torn down.
“It feels like we are taking down a national landmark,” said Alex Tarbell.
For the life on the nation, it was. Basketball games, craft shows, turkey shoots, pancake breakfasts, lacrosse banquets, birthday parties, anniversaries, Tupperware parties, or just a great place to meet your friends on your bicycle, the fire barn was the place to be.
Although it is sad to see it go, we’ll all still have of those awesome memories of the fire barn.
