Davis 65.021 Vigilante Fire Station #1

Description

Vigilante Fire Station #1 stood on the northeast corner of Jefferson Street and Kirk Avenue. Shown here shortly before completion in 1888, the fire station remained in use until 1907 when the "new" Station #1 was built on Church Avenue. Prior to the building being razed in 1977, the building was occupied my several tenants, the last being Hanover Shoes and Stein's Clothiers.
