Note:

As discovered in 2018 by John B. Green III of New Bern, the New Bernian of Thursday, August 28 1928, contained an article entitled “Firehouse Plans” and citing Gullett as architect. The description, including the loggia-like balcony and columned arches, correlates with the building on Broad Street which is now the New Bern Fireman’s Museum. Peter Sandbeck describes its architecture as “whimsical late-1920s Mediterranean or Spanish Revival.”
