Holly St. Fire Hall Celebrates 100 Years

October 2, 2014 in What's going on by Kevin Wisniewski

Hollystfire old100th Anniversary of Station 14

The NFD  officially recognized the longevity of Station 14 on Holly St. as an historical structure and the contribution, peace of mind, and public service its Firefighters have made to the Lockeland Springs and East Nashville communities during the past 100 years in a ceremony on Oct. 1, 2014.

In 1913, when the City of Nashville announced plans to build two new firehalls in outlying suburbs, neighbors organized the Lockeland Improvement League and petitioned to get one built in their neighborhood.

The firehall, designed in the Colonial Revival style by James Yeaman, Nashville’s first city architect, was the first built specifically for motorized vehicles and the first designed to blend into a residential neighborhood. It opened with formal ceremonies on October 1, 1914, as the:
J.B. Richardson Engine Company No. 14

Richardson was a prominent businessman who had bought the Lockeland Mansion as his country estate and when he died in 1913, the City of Nashville named the Station in his honor.

A. A. Rozetta was Chief of Fire Department when Station 14 opened and today it’s the City of Nashville’s oldest active Fire Station.

Lockeland Springs Park Updates

October 1, 2014 in Lockeland Park, What's going on by Kevin Wisniewski

lspark3If you’ve walked through the Lockeland Springs Park lately, you are sure to have noticed the many recent beautification updates.

This past July, fifty Vanderbilt University faculty, high school students and other volunteers took part in a field work day at Lockeland Springs Park and Lockeland Design Center.

Following the lead of Dr. Chris Vanags, Associate Director, Vanderbilt Center for Science Outreach, the students cleared and mulched a new path in the park from the Woodland street entrance down to the stream bed, removed brush, worked on park interpretation and display ideas, recorded the GIS locations of many trees planted last spring, and in collaboration with Bo Daniel Parr, created new garden beds at Lockeland Design Center.

Jennifer Tlumak, Executive Director of the Urban Green Lab, spoke with the students about sustainable living and provided leadership to teams in removing invasive species. Councilman Peter Westerholm shared thoughts on community service and the future of the park.

Additionally, Antonin Kouldelka, a member of Scout Troop 3, and candidate for the Eagle Award, recently completed a new bridge over the stream that flows through Lockeland Springs Park. Scout Kouldelka led the design, approval and construction processes for this bridge. The new bridge allows access to the masonry platforms, walls and tanks which remain from the historic water bottling operations which began in Lockeland Springs more than one hundred ten years ago.

Many thanks to our community leaders, colleagues and students for this tremendous contribution to our park. We encourage you to take a stroll and see this lovely bit of history in our own backyard.lspark6 lspark5
