2 reviews of 98 Firemen Station

From the early twentieth century, it is the oldest fire station in the city that is still in operation. It is similar to the attached pumping station and Water Tower, two Chicago symbols that are right next door and the reasons the fire station was located here, as the stone walls were made from the same quarry.
