This site had been, from 1837 to 1911, fire headquarters of
the town's earlier Engine House No. I. In those 74 years our chief fire
center had gone from loyal volunteer ownership, ending in 1860, to a paid
city-operated agency as it remains today. This Engine House Number One was
built in 1910 with a two-story stone facade, two large arched entries between
square smooth Tuscan pilasters and exaggerated keystones at doors and windows.
The north wall at the entrance is a bronze frieze of working firemen. “... he
came to his death while in the faithful discharge of his duty as a fireman.”
