Houston Fire Museum -- Station No. 7

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Houston's oldest fire house, this building was designed by Olle J. Lorehn (c. 1864-1939) and was completed in January 1899. The two-story brick structure features rusticated stone details, a five-bay front with central arched entry flanked by two apparatus bay entries, and unique parapet details. Updated in the 1920s to change from horse-drawn to motorized equipment, the station remained in active service until 1968. It serves as the Houston Fire Museum today.
