07/27/09 77 W, 1 I - + 7 - 13 Broad Street Fire Station

Here's Richmond's old "ten house," the former quarters of Engine 10 and Truck 3 at 1609 W. Broad Street. Opened in 1905, the two-story structure served until 1993. That year, Engine 10 was moved to Hermitage Road, and Truck 3 was disbanded to become Task Force 10. The building has served as a playhouse since that time. More pictures coming, of all historic active and retired Richmond firehouses. Learn more.

Way back when I was 6 years old, my first grade class toured this station. The engine was a Mack C model and the ladder was a Pircsh tiller.
