Fire Station, Donalsonville

The large red building has served as the Donalsonville fire station for many years, but I believe it will soon be relocated. The structure was built for the Chero-Cola Bottling Works and also housed City Hall for a time.

One of just a few firehouses from this era still in use in Georgia, the Dawson firehouse also features a tornado whistle. The southwest corner of the state is sometimes referred to as Georgia’s “Tornado Alley”.
