Cabinet, 86" Tall x 54" Wide, Wood, 1922 Roanoke, Virginia Fire Station



Salvaged from Fire Station #1 in Roanoke, Virginia, this 7.2 foot tall primitive pine cabinet features v-groove pine paneling, original primitive design and hardware. The cabinet has 2 2-panel doors, with 2 compartments within each. Each door is equipped with a single pull handle. The right door has a small cabinet latch mounted above the handle.
The left compartment has 6 shelves, while the right cabinet has 3; more can be added.
With some minor repairs and reinforcing, this cabinet would be great for a bathroom, pantry, wardrobe, shed, or workspace!
Condition: Sturdy construction, Surface scuffs, scratches & gouges as expected with heavy use in a fire station setting. The back of the cabinet is not enclosed as this piece was built-in against a wall prior to salvaging. The bottom left baseboard is missing and will need replacement for the cabinet to stand freely. A crack has formed above the doors and runs vertically through the center of the cabinet, through the crown molding.

History: This cabinet was salvaged from the historic Fire Station No. 1 in Downtown Roanoke, Virginia. This station was one of the longest continually operating in Virginia; in use from 1907, until 2007, when a replacement facility was opened. This firehouse and items from it are featured on Season 11, Episode 11, of the DIY Network show, "Salvage Dawgs".
