Engine Company #10 Firehouse was constructed in 1893 on the site of the only firehouse in Milwaukee's history to be destroyed by fire (1892). Because of its intact exterior, it was used as a backdrop in the 1968 film "Gaily, Gaily." Today, the Queen Anne style building houses Jamie Wilke Interiors, a home furnishings company.
