SCHOHARIE – It was a milestone celebration for the Village of Schoharie on Saturday as they cut the ribbon on a new firehouse.
The old building was destroyed following the devastating floods from Tropical Storm Irene back in 2011.
Village of Schoharie Fire Chief Marty Pierce says the new building is state of the art. As they celebrate 185 years of service, they planned for the future with a facility built to last perhaps another 185 years.
The new firehouse is also a place for the community to get together.
“This is probably the best thing that's happened to the village, [the] most significant recovery aspect,” said Village of Schoharie Mayor John Borst.
“There's not a lot in this community, so to have a building where we can do social functions for the public is very important,” added Pierce.
It took more than six years to build the new firehouse.
