The California Department of Agriculture responded to our request to send historical information regarding the Agricultural Inspection Station on Amboy that now serves as our Firehouse. They sent the series of photos below.
Before the building was built the inspection station was nothing more than a stop on the side of the road.
The building was built about 1960. It's assume the station was closed in 1967 when the Needles Inspection Station was opened. The building now serves as our fire house. (Click on the photos to embiggen.)
