If you live in Cincinnati, chances are you drive past one of these historic structures regularly, without even knowing it. Nearly every major transportation artery in the city passes within a few blocks of one. All of the firehouses that date past 1890 have been abandoned for more modern facilities. However, as late as the 1980's a few companies continued to operate out of these historic structures. Today many of them are in service as other types of occupancy, and will probably continue to stand well into the next century. Click on the thumbnails below for full size viewing and information about these historic structures. More information will be posted as it becomes available.
