Engine House 11
The Historic National Road in Ohio
Fire Station, Engine House, and Station House are terms that have been used interchangeably over many years to note the location of community firefighters and their equipment. This station or engine house has a “sister station" No. 10 which was also constructed on the National Road during the same year at West Broad and Glenwood Avenue. Station No. 10 is an architectural match.
In 1951, Emergency Squad 1 was moved to Station 11, followed by the squad supervisor and all
squad support supplies for the entire city. Additionally, Station 11 housed the gas mask repair shop for the fire division.
Erected 2014 by The Ohio National Road Association.
