Rich with history and full of great potential is this charming 2 story building located on a nice corner lot. Built in the 1930s this 2 story hand cut rock building served as the Fire-station in Waldron for many years. The white building on the corner was the Waldron Water Department and housed several large pumps that pumped from a well inside that’s approximately 750′ deep. It has been covered for years but could still be used! It served the city of Waldron up until the local poultry processing plant now owned by Tyson Foods was constructed in the 1960’s. The large cement/rock structure on the west side of the property are cement tanks that stored the city’s water with another pump house located between them. 2 doors have been cut in one of the cement “tanks”. The walls are approximately 10″ thick, double matted with re-bar and an approximately 5″ cement top. The Firehouse was added onto in the 1980’s and has previously served as a home, daycare center, flea market, home daycare, and rental property. It’s currently laid out as a large 3 bdrm 1bath apartment upstairs and has a completely open floor plan on the lower level that could be easily made back into an apartment (plumbing already in place)! The large lot is already commercially zoned and there’s enough room for another business between this building and the local Family Dollar franchise building located on West 2nd St. The owner reports that numerous people over the years have mentioned they’d build apartments on top of the cement structure, make inside the tank the front of a store and expand to the east where it could easily be connected to the main house. This location is close to Tyson Foods and does get an abundance of foot traffic. The main building does need some work, mainly cosmetic, but is extremely secure and wouldn’t take much to be open for business! The white building is currently used for storage and in need of repairs but offers great salvage of the vintage lumber and windows! This building has previously generated $900/month + all utilities rental income but could easily be much more with a little work! The lot size is 104’x233′, Cement structure 26’x114′, Main Building 38’x42′, Main building add-on 38’x38′. Call for your private showing today and make this part of Scott County’s history your own!
