1. The Original Firehouse
Georgetown's modern fire department was organized in 1927, but the Fire Protection District wasn't formed until 1938 when this small building was built to house the district's sole fire engine. A new, bigger brick building with offices and extra bays was constructed thirty years later directly across the street and the old firehouse was converted for commercial use.
