In the winter of 1979 the rear corner of the property at Park Avenue and N. Franklin Street was either donated or sold to the Borough of Hanover to build the new Wirt Park Fire Station. The large four story brick building that occupied that corner of the property was demolished. The new fire station was completed in 1982. In several of the photos below you can see the 120 foot tall, free standing water tower with the words "Hanover Shoe" painted in white. The water tower was torn down some time between 1982 and 1996.
