This Day in History: 1929-01-07
The recent fire in the home of Alex Adams demonstrated the extreme need the Town has for a Firehouse. Nearly 3/4 of the members threatened to resign unless the Township Committee acted to begin the construction of a heated firehouse on the site at the corner of Miller Rd and Franklin Turnpike. In addition to the urgently needed firehouse the site was considered ideal fro a library, town hall and community house. The site was considered perfect for a true community center. The general layout and architectural treatment of the center was considered of great importance to the future growth of the community and the sort of people attracted to live in Mahwah.
