Significance: Designed by Charles K. Shand and built in 1898, this Fire Station is his most successful design in the community. Using local red sandstone, and the no longer fashionable Richardsonian Romanesque, he produced a solid and dignified building. The plan, also, is well realized, incorporating the needs of horses, engines and men. The building served the community until 1964 when the fire department was moved into quarters in the village hall.
