1. Central Fire Station Marker
Inscription.  
This structure was built in 1927 to house the Beaumont fire Department. Organized in 1881. Designed by the architectural firm of Livesay and Wiedemann, the building was constructed on the site of two earlier fire stations. Influences of the Spanish renaissance revival style, which was popular at the time, are evident in the red brick ornamentation and the geometric tile work under the eaves of the roof.
