01/24/12 612 W, 1 I - + 21 - 8 UPDATED: Historic and Former Firehouses of Indianapolis

January 23
For your hysterical historical enjoyment, and in preparation for a possible first-time trip to FDIC in a couple more months, here's an armchair tour of historic and former firehouse of Indianapolis. Twenty-two active and former firehouses dating to 1872. Photos from Google and IFD. Data from IFD, as previously posted below. Can't wait to see the things in person.

Next question, what other major metropolitan fire departments have historical fire station information readily available? Will virtually visit fire stations for food. Meanwhile, see this history page more old stations including Baltimore, Charleston, Detroit, Minneapolis, Milwaukee, and St. Louis. Those were all real visits.

Random browsing found this station history page on the Indianapolis Fire Department web site. Parsing the data for those buildings still standing and over 50 years old results in these results. Sounds like a place to visit some time! Especially since Yours Truly has never yet attended FDIC. Next step, do some Google Streets browsing!
