Hose Company No. 06

Service at “0-6” couldn’t have been more cheery, helpful or timely. Large windows above and below our table gave us the last bits of late-summer sunshine, and we noticed the outdoor seating with large glass doors nearby. The dining room’s highest wall is divided by wooden wainscoting below, a wooden knickknack shelf above, a nice green color in between, where old black-and-white photos from the fire station’s heyday are displayed.
Take time to look at them, as well as the eight brass nozzles hanging in a large frame in the bar. Note the dent in the largest one. This old building has known a lot of life and could tell a lot of stories. Now it has a new life, and the new stories are ours.
