Title

Davis 65.11 Fire Station #1

Description

Fire Station #1, located at 13 Church Avenue, was completed in 1907. The building, now on the National Register of Historic Places, was in service as a fire station for 100 years. A horse-drawn hose wagon (left) and ladder truck are seen in front of the bays. By 1911, the Roanoke Fire Department had purchased its first motorized fire engine and by 1918 horse-drawn engines would be completely phased out in the City of Roanoke.
