Business History
Designed to impress, this 1930s building has recently been restored by the Charlotte Fire Fighters Association as an elegant reception and special events venue. The recently restored Palmer Fire School boasts a unique gathering place for Charlotteans. The rubble stone structure was built in the late 1930's during President Roosevelt's Works Progress Administration in an effort to employ people in the midst of the great depression. Then Fire Chief Hendrix Palmer, which the building was named after, lobbied government officials to approve funding for construction of the facility to provide firefighters with the best training facility in the country at that time. Many firefighters themselves aided in the construction of the building hauling materials from an old tannery on Burton Street and later excavating and finishing two-thirds of the basement. The grounds were also landscaped by firefighters which now boast breath taking magnolias, oaks, and pines.
