Historical Significance:

Constructed around 1910, the Old Fire Station in Braintree boasts a storied past, reflecting its pivotal role in the community. For decades, it was the town's main hub for firefighting services, symbolizing safety and protection for Braintree residents. The building's distinctive red-brick facade, large arched doors, and prominent lookout tower are a testament to its early 20th-century architectural style. While the operational needs of the fire service eventually outgrew the facility, leading to its closure in the latter half of the 20th century, the building has been meticulously preserved and repurposed, now offering a unique living space with an abundance of character.
