My great grandfather Charles B Nixon was a LT at this firehouse and unfortunately dropped dead there of a heart attack at the age of 42 in 1908.

This picture is from the early 60s, that is when they took out the old gate doors and installed a regular door

Engine 26's quarters along with Engine 28 are done in the fortress turret style. The best example of this firehouse architecture was actually integrated into Engine 27's quarters which were destroyed in the 1990's. That station had the best example of the turret.
Engine 26's quarters however have become significant in firehouse architecture.
