This fire station was built in 1897 and designed by the local architectural firm of Gardner, Pyne, and Gardner. A northern addition, designed by B Hammett Seabury, was erected in 1906. The station ceased operation in the late 1960s and was used for a workshop and storage space for city departments.
It has been closed for some years. The City offered it for sale several times without any redevelopment incentives. There has been no interest, and the building continues to age.
