Walking through the Lonsdale Fire station at 224 Front St., the atmosphere is that of a ghost town. Lincoln Rescue crew members, the only group that facilitates the station now, are out on a call. Firefighters haven’t worked out of this building in more than two years now, since the Lonsdale Fire District was determined financially insolvent. But throughout the station are memorabilia, knickknacks, muster trophies, medals, plaques displaying previous fire association presidents’ names, “thank you” cards from residents and historic documents, photos and old newspaper clippings.
