One of the fun aspects of living in Jacksonville Florida is the older buildings that surround my neighborhood that are still being used. I was first attracted to the Fire Station #10 when I was driving by and noticed the rounded door. I went back, snapped a picture and enjoyed creating this watercolor image. I was so captivated with this image that I started to research other fire stations in our community.
The oldest residential area of our city is Spring Field. This is an image of Fire Station #2 which is still active and located right on Main Street. I just love the big red number 2 that is on the front of the building.
Fire Station #3 is in the San Marco neighborhood close to the shopping area. I am still chuckling at the fire hydrant right our front of the building! I was glad when I took the picture that a fire truck was parked outside.
Here is the Catherine Street Fire Station that was built in 1902, 10 months after the Great Fire of Jacksonville in 1901. Just love the big round door that the fire truck comes out of. This building is now the Jacksonville Fire Museum. Check out their website that has the history of Jacksonville’s Fire Stations.
