The Fire Museum
The Lego Fire Museum had its first home in an old fire station. The building was built in the Italianate style in 1904.
About this creation

The Italianate style of architecture is a distinct 19th Century phase in the history of Classical architecture. It is inspired by 16th Century Italian Renaissance architecture. The Italianate style was first developed in Britain about 1802. From the 1840s to the 1890s it was hugely popularity in the United States.

The Italianate style was suitable for many different building materials and budgets. It was used for virtually every type of building, from private residences to large public buildings.

The Old Fire Station was active from 1904 until 2000 when it was closed. Over the years many classic fire trucks called this building home. These include Mack, Aherns-Fox and American LaFrance
The Old Fire Station became the first home to the Fire Museum. Over the years a number of additions behind the Old Fire Station have been built to accommodate the ever growing collection. BFD552@Gmail.com.

Quoting Hank Przybylowicz This is BEAUTIFUL!! Is there any chance of getting plans of this so we might be able to build one of our own?
I am glad that you like the Firehouse. There are no drawn plans for it. I built this from a composite design that I had in my head. I was inspired by a number of historic fire stations.

Quoting Maxime MaxSamAlex Nothing like a good old-fashioned lego building like this one! Really like the architecture, looks very realistic. Which fire station was this based off of, and where?
It is based upon no particular station. It is a composite of a number of elements that I like.

That is a big building, looks really cool. I will have to try and visit the real Museum some time. And don't lissen to people who complain that you only build rescue things, LEGO City is very sucsessful and they have only built non rescue things in the last 2 years! Besides your stuff is so much better then what LEGO makes, bigger and way more detailed!

Quoting Eric and Lawson B This really is stunning. The facade has some great detail making it look very convincing. Does it have an interior? If it does, it'd be great to see some shots of it. Your photos are up to your usual high standard. Regards, Eric.
The interior is a work in progress. Work is being supervised by a 5 year old so it is slow going.

The design of this house is amazing! I love the various "aged" pictures; the architecture really has that vintage feel to it. Great creation.
