History:

As new towns and camps popped up all across the United States, wood construction was usually the first, fastest, and least expensive means to erect a building and town. This meant that these early towns and their buildings were always at risk if a fire broke out. Many well known towns, and a few cities, fell to fires before fire codes were established. Often, these codes included provisions requiring brick and or stone construction. Therefore, a town was always in need of firehouses to help mobilize a fire relief effort.

Design:

This model was designed based on a prototype fire house in Diamondville, Nevada.

The original drawings for the structure can be found in Joe Crea and Elwood Bell’s book, Structures of the Early West.

We thank Joe Crea for giving us permission to use his drawings to recreate this structure in model form.
