On Firehouse No. 3:"Fire Station Number 3 is one of two nineteenth century firehouses remaining in Sacramento. It was the oldest firehouse in use in the city when it was closed in 1982. Constructed in 1893 Fire Station Number 3 served the city west of Alhambra Boulevard for nearly a hundred years. The Firehouse is a two story brick building designed in a Classical Revival style. These classical design elements can be seen in the building’s symmetry, form, pediments, and decoration. The entry façade contains two bays, both two stories in height, which project slightly from the front. Classically inspired pediment, fire department symbols, and the decorated friezes are among the best in the city. Rusticated stonework around the building suggests a Romanesque Revival influence as well...." (Submitted on November 23, 2010, by Andrew Ruppenstein of Sacramento, California.)
