Former-Fire Station #1 Removed for Community Greenspace

Jun 20, 2017

AKWESASNE - On Ohiari:ha/June 20, 2017; the old Hogansburg-Akwesasne Volunteer Fire Department’s Station #1 built in 1960 on Gray Street in Hogansburg, New York was demolished to help restore the location to green space; with picnic tables and benches for community members to oversee the St. Regis River. The Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe’s Office for Economic Development, in collaboration with the Akwesasne Tourism Working Group, is also developing plans to utilize the area directly across the river for an Art Park to promote tourism. For the past 13 years, the old fire station served as a location for the Tribe’s Planning and Infrastructure Division, which recently relocated to a new facility on State Route 95 where a ribbon-cutting ceremony and open house is being planned for Early-August.
