Man Buys An Old Fire Station For Just 1 Dollar And Turns It Into His Home
Apr 30, 2015
As years passed, many fire stations were built across America, each housing courageous men (and eventually, women) who risked their lives to fight flames. Unfortunately, many of these historic buildings have been lost to decay; however, an old firehouse in Cincinnati has a different story. It wasn't only saved - it's now a focal point of the town.
Only 11 years after the first American colonies were formed, the New World realized that it needed fire departments. A citizen smoking tobacco had caused a fire that left everyone in 1631 Boston nervous. They needed a way to keep their new communities safe, and by 1647, fire stations began to appear, boasting members such as George Washington and Paul Revere.
