Fire Station No. 2

Uppertown Astoria ~ June 2013

This historic red brick building was originally constructed in 1896 as part of the popular North Pacific Brewery which closed its doors in 1915 due to prohibition. In 1928, the City of Astoria renovated the building for use as the Uppertown Fire Station #2. The station was decommissioned by the City in 1960 and used for equipment storage until 1989 when the Uppertown Firefighters Museum opened.

I remember when an old man lost control of his car and smashed into the door where the museum sign now is. No one cared enough to restore the door so the put up t-11 siding. so much for their caring for historical authenticity
