This former firehouse is the only surviving wood-frame firehouse in Chicago. Its design, which accommodated horse-drawn equipment, was once widely used for firehouses in the late 19th century as the city rapidly grew. Through their history and architecture historic Chicago firehouses like this one represent evolving ideas about the firehouse and fire protection in the City over time.
