Pictured in 1969, this Fire Station was built in 1911, designed in a modified Germanic style evident by its stepped gables, large overhanging eaves, and wooden brackets on the sides of the building. It was made for horse-drawn fire wagons and therefore no surprise that it's no longer in service, thought it was in continuous use for 63 years--longer than any other fire station in Seattle. These days it's used as a restaurant and offices. Any idea what's in the building these days?
