Engine House 22 History

Originally built in 1887, this was a single-bay, two-story house at Front and Matilda. It first housed Supply Hose Number 5. A 1940 report stated that it had been "completely rebuilt and modernized into a bungalow-type station with sleeping quarters in the rear." The building still stands and is occupied by a refrigeration company. On October 8, 1912, Hose 5 was replaced by Engine 22. In 1958, the present station was built at Front and Marion, housing Engine 22 and Ladder 3.

For many decades, black firefighters were segregated into one fire company. This was their headquarters.
