Old Fire Station in Hallowell, Maine

Today we head back to Hallowell, Maine and take a look at the old fire station:

“Old Fire Station (c. 1830), home of Hallowell’s first Fire Department (organized 1834). Old door openings (still visible) accommodated early hand pumpers. (Before 1834, a Watch Association composed by law of every Hallowell citizen fought the City’s frequent fires.) In 1900, the Fire Department moved to the old City Hall.”
