Our town offered a free rabies clinic for pets a few weeks ago at the Firehouse. I had never been around back of the huge building in all of the 26 years we have lived here. To my surprise, I noticed this old firehouse. I didn’t have my camera at the time (just a rather frightened schnauzer as he eyed LOTS of other uneasy dogs). A return trip would be perfect for Outdoor Wednesday as well as continue to add family history to this blog for my kids and grandchildren.

What a cool looking building and they have kept it so well maintained. It's too bad more of the older buildings haven't been kept up like this one

I just love old buildings/homes ~ especially when they have been well taken care of like this old Firehouse! I do wish more towns/cities would preserve their past this way!

Thank you for sharing the historic firehouse! I love old buildings and learning about their history. I also think it is great that your town offered free rabies shots. Hopefully lots of pet owners took advantage of it.

The fire station is wonderful, it's grand that it has been so well looked after & is still in use today.
