8. The Newberry Firehouse Conference Centre

Happy Monday from the Newberry Firehouse Conference Center!

Posted by Newberry Firehouse Conference Center on Monday, 19 May 2014

Through the years, many beautiful landmarks have been built in the town, including the Old Fire Station. In 1883, the Newberry Fire Department was formed by the town and was housed in the Opera House. A few years later, in the early 1900s, a two story fire house was built right next door to the Opera House, giving the Fire Department of Newberry a place of their own.

Eventually, in the 1930s, it was expanded and remodeled in the style of Art Deco by the Works Progress Administration, though it was decommissioned in the 1980s. In 2005, the Old Fire Station was renovated into a state of the art conference center for businesses and social events. Today it is still available for businesses to meet in any of the wide variety of rooms for training seminars, management retreats and executive board meetings.
