This former Zanesville station is located at 625 Forest Avenue.  Would anyone on the boards know which company operated from here?  Steve Hagy photo.

This building was formerly the quarters of Engine Company 6 in Lima.  Look at the "Fire Station Number 6" in the stonework over the doorways!  Located at LaFayette & Main Streets on the south side of town, this station was just a block away from the Lima Locomotive Works.  The combination of brick and stone gave this house a very pleasing appearance.  Also, notice the dormers up in the bunk room.  Steve Hagy photos.

Lebanon, Ohio is located about 40 miles from where I live. The town is noted for the many antique shops throughout the business district. I'm sure that over the years I have visted there over 100 times.  Much to my surprise, I discovered this terrific looking hand drawn era station for the volunteer "Orient Fire Co". The name is carved into the stone archways over the doors. After having a look at the LFD web site, it appears that this building was constructed in 1879.  Steve Hagy photo.

Thats former Station-3, on the north side near the hospital. Zanesville actually has several nice old house still standing. That one, one downtown just south of the current Station-1, and former station 4?, which is on the south side. Interesting note about ZFD: they still use "red line" as their primary attack line-- and I don't mean 1.5 or 1.75 inch!

Hi Chris,

Thanks for the ZFD input.  In speaking with one of the assisatnt chief's while I was there, I was surprised to learn that the ZFD had peaked at 10 stations.  I had seen some older information that listed 7 houses there.  There were several that the AC mentioned that we didn't have time to check out. 
The photo below shows the former quarters of Hose 10 located at 7th & Allen Streets.  This station can be seen from the ramp at the current ZFD headquarters.

Joe, "red line" or booster line which would imply 3/4" or 1".  It's surprising to hear that they are still using this.

Later,

Steve

Massillon Central Engine House.  Built in 1893...used until 1970 when a new Station No. 1 was constructed a few blocks to the SW, to make room for a new city government center.  Too bad, as there was (really) nothing wrong with old Central, with room to the east for an additional apparatus bay.  :(

Station 1 and 2 have both been replaced with brand new stations at different locations. Old station 1 still stands, empty though. Old station 2 was torn down and is completely gone. New Station 1 is on Pearl Rd, just up from Ridge RD @ 5625 Pearl. New Station 2 is on Snow Rd just east of State Rd, I do not know the exact address right now. Here is a video from parmafire.org about the 2 new stations. By the way, I guess they are not so new anymore, I think they have been in them for almost 2 years now.

Station 72
Reed Road & Lytham

Ladder 72

I could not find a plaque & I did not stop as I was late for an appointment.  It opened late Fall/Winer of 2009 or Early 2010.  No tire marks on the ramp yet & you can still see the lines in the sod.  The little projection off the front houses their 1928 Seagrave pumper that was fully restored.
There is an overhead door that opens onto the ramp.  Maybe if I'm lucky, I'll get a shot of it some time.  I'm also not sure of what runs out of here besides the ladder.  The old station is in the adjacent lot to the South.

Upper Arlington closed Station 73 on Coach Rd.  They moved M-73, Battalion 72, Prevention, and the EMS coordinator from that station to the new station 72. The closed station will serve as a place to park extra equipment. The new station 72 also houses all fire department administation, some police administration and the police gun range in the basement.

Thanks for the updated info.  So they are down to just the 2 stations?  I still want to stop by and look at the Seagrave.  I managed to see it up in Jackson, MI right after the restoration was completed.  I'd like to see it again some time and get a nice photo of it.

You Win!!!  Thanks for playing our game.  I was being a little snarky when I posted the original question.  I don't think I'ver ever seen a new station built that close to the old one.  I've seen them knock the old one down & use the site again.  Any way, it sure makes it easy to compare the 2 structures.  I think old 10's is on the historic list so it's not going any where soon.

Buckeye 53;

Yes, I am happy to see it was not smashed in the name of "progress."  Is it [or will it] be used to house a dept. antique or memorabilia ?  Looks like it would be a real nice museum or alarm equipment display.  We begged the city to keep one of Massillon's 1900 stations back in the '70's, but lost.

By the way, Massillon's (1893) former central, was nearly a carbon copy of Columbus (1892) No. 2 station, except the the bell-tower was reversed.  It cost +/- $23,000, and was smashed for the new city hall in 1970...page 5 - starting at photo 14

The end of an era.  Dover Ohio, 1957 shot of fire bell being removed from tower.  The bell was installed from previous building when this city hall was built in 1905.  Prior to being used the bell caused a controversy because it was equipped with an electric clapper and some residents feared it may not be loud enough- it must have been adequatebecause after it was installed there was no further mention in the papers of the day.  A few years later the bell was discontinued in favor of a steam whistle at a nearby steel mill, and in 1929 a Gamewell Coded Wheel siren system was installed.  The Gamewell had a series of changeable cams that changed the contacts for a series of intervals or a single long blast.  The number of soundings per cycle indicated the ward in which the fire was located, and every boy over about 8 years old was able to identify where the fire was, so it was a pretty effective system for it's day!

So,  maybe this was the station which responded first when the river was burning in late 60's?

     Detroit and 'driven to Alliance'; the chief's car, a 1909 Robinson with the bell, and a Robinson Jumbo. The Robinson
     with the bell was built in 1909 and was the first motorized fire engine in the state of Ohio.

2 - Alliance Fire Department Chief John Held sits in the fire chief's car, next to the 1916 Sampson at Station No.1

Great pics of Lakewood!  The Warren Rd. station was built in 1913 & closed in 1993 when HQ was relocated to the newly built station on Madison Ave. near Warren Rd.  Station No. 2 was remodeled in 1990 with the addition of the apparatus bay to the right of the original station, and an ambulance bay out the rear.  The kitchen now sits where the engine used to.  Station No. 3 on Hopkins Ave. south of Detroit was closed in 1976 with the completion of a new No. 3 on Clifton Blvd. north of the RR tracks.  The Hopkins Ave. fire house still stands and was nicely redone by a real estate developer.  Sadly the former Warren Rd. station was demolished to make way for the Marc's plaza at Warren & Detroit.

Thanks for the 'update' on the Lakewood stations.  I find it amusing that FDNY can still use (some) century old buildings, that apparatus must be 'wedged-in' single bay, double deep, some with three storys, window a/c units hanging out of of every window, no apron whatsoever.  While other cities (think they must) smash stations that are still capable of service for many years to come, and erect $40 million dollar (state-of-the-art) buildings, with drive-thru bays...which require more property and concrete surface, central a/c in the bays, special work-out areas, all stainless steel appliances, and there is FDNY, one of the largest cities on planet earth...still backing apparatus in at an angle to accomodiate all the rigs...still plugging along just fine.  LOL

Columbus, OH Station 3
222 Greenlawn Ave.
Engine 3
Ladder 2
Rescue 2
Medic 3
EMS 11
Bomb Squad
DART 2

Columbus's newest & largest fire station.  Moved from the station on Fulton St. that they shared with the 2's since the early 1960's.  E-2 staffing was used to put a new company in service on the East Side of Columbus, Ladder 5. The construction process is beginning at the Fulton St. location where the old house will be demolished and a new replacement station is to be built for the 2's.  E-2 will return to service and Ladder 2 will move up there. A new Medic 2 will go into service there. Rescue 2 will stay at the 3's and I would guess be renumbered. Ladder 5 will stay in service, so in essence CFD will gain another fire co. and a new medic unit. New quarters to be completed sometime in 2017.

The Wapakoneta Fire Department has been operating from this station since 1885, an amazing 133 years!  As much as I enjoy seeing old firehouses in use, the apparatus can just barely fit through the doors and I would think that this historic building will need to be replaced.  Wapakoneta is the county seat of Auglaize County and is the birthplace of Neil Armstrong, the first person to walk on the moon.  Steve Hagy photo.
