Fire Department

The Shrewsbury Fire Department and the Shrewsbury Brass Band gathered in front of the old Quinsigamond Fire House in Shrewsbury Center.  The station faced south toward the Sumner House.

 

Notice the horse carriage sheds in the background. These belonged to the First Congregational Church.

This Fire House was torn down to make way for the new 1927 Police and Fire Department Headquarters.

If you look carefully, the front door of the 1830 Schoolhouse is visible at the far right.

The 1927 Station was demolished in January, 2008 to make way for the new Center Fire Station Headquarters.
