Description

Own a piece of Galveston History. The 1903 Firehouse No. 3 replaced the original one in the same location. While the architect is not yet known, the building is a good and rare example of a civic firehouse of the late 19th and early 20th century. In 1957, Star State Company No. 3 became the first firehouse in the city to integrate with African American firemen. The city continued to use the building as a fire station until it was decommissioned in the 1960s. Owned by the Galveston Historic Foundation, who saved it from demolition and has kept the original facade. While the station is still in its original location, significant exterior alterations have occurred to the building including the removal of decorative features and the application of stucco over the original brickwork. Interior is ready for buildout space for 2 floors.
