07/22/09 101 W, 1 I - + 9 - 7 Ann Street Fire Station


Among the many retired engine houses in Baltimore are a handful of former volunteer stations, such as this two-story brick building at the intersection of 5th Street and Pontiac Avenue. Built in 1911, it first housed the Brooklyn Volunteer Fire Company of Anne Arundel County. The 100-foot deep lot cost $3,250, and the building $5,990. On March 29, 1919, after the area was annexed, it opened as Baltimore Fire Department Engine 35, which was reorganized and placed in service with a 1912 Mack AB combination hose wagon. It also later housed Truck 21. The station was closed in 1961.
