Facts

  • The station was built as part of the Toronto Fire service's expansion during the 1870s.
  • The fire station received a motorized fire engine in 1911 to replace the older horse-drawn engines.
  • Somewhat ironically, the station was completely rebuilt as a facsimile of the original in 1972, the original having been destroyed in a fire.
