VICTORIA, Texas (AP) - A 100-year-old building that once served as a downtown fire station in Victoria is set to be renovated and used a courthouse addition.

The Victoria Advocate (https://bit.ly/1nhqv3F ) reports that Victoria County will open bids in about a month to renovate the building that once was the Central Fire Station.

The project that’s estimated to cost about $2 million will include gutting the inside of the building. The facade of the building will mimic the old station’s look, with glass doors installed in front to give the same appearance of the four doors that once opened into the firehouse bay.

Architect Patrick Ohrt says the plan is to incorporate many elements of the old building into the renovation, including wood beams and metal decorations on the outside.
