Cordova’s first city hall was an old wooden structure that dated back to 1935, but conveniently housed the administration, civil defense, fire and police departments, as well as the local gymnasium. It was recognized in the late 1960s that improved facilities were needed to house the range of growing city functions in Cordova, along with the fact that basketballs bouncing steadily above office spaces left a little to be desired! This picture shows the Volunteer Fire Department. Can you recognize some of these folks? Stop in to the museum and see if you can help us identify everyone in this photo.
