The Historic National Road in Ohio

At the turn of the 20th century, three Columbus fire stations were on the National Road, including Station 11 which was built here at 1000 East Main. Construction began in August 1896 and was completed in February 1897 at a cost of $12,863. The cost of furnishing and equipping the engine house, including six horses, was an additional $10,700, for a total cost of $23,653.
Fire Station, Engine House, and Station House are terms that have been used interchangeably over many years to note the location of community firefighters and their equipment. This station or engine house has a "sister station" No. 10 which was also constructed on the National Road during the same year at West Broad and Glenwood Avenue. Station No. 10 is an architectural match.
In 1951, Emergency Squad 1 was moved to Station 11, followed by the squad supervisor and all
squad support supplies for the entire city. Additionally, Station 11 housed the gas mask repair shop for the fire division.
