La Vergne Civic Auditorium Demolished preparing for new Fire Station
According to the Murfreesboro Post, history gave way to progress last Wednesday when the City of La Vergne’s maintenance department demolished the city’s original Civic Auditorium to make way for a new fire station that will replace the fire hall on Stones River Road.
Murfreesboro Post writer Angie Mayes wrote back in June that the auditorium was built in 1961 by the La Vergne Men’s Club and has hosted city events, church services, baby showers, birthday parties, Police Athletic League functions and other activities. It was built 11 years prior to the city’s incorporation in 1972.
WGNS Radio Rutherford Magazine Show hosts La Vergne Mayor Jason Cole, Vice-Mayor Steve Noe, Alderman Graeme Coates and Historian Marty Luffman as they discuss La Vergne history and new developments.
“The new La Vergne Fire Station 41 will be built on the property on Old Nashville Highway where the fire administration building, formerly known as the Civic Auditorium, currently (stood),” City Public Information Officer Anne Smith said. “As the city continues to grow, so does the need for a larger, more equipped fire station.”
