    I’m really excited to see the station house at Wilson be restored. I wish they would use the historic entrance again but I get that it’s more practical to use as a revenue generator by bringing in retail again. But I hope it will be something not fast-food related. The stink from that old Popeye’s made me hate getting off at Wilson.
