Burleith in Washington, District of Columbia — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
Introduction to Burleith
Fire call boxes were installed throughout Washington, D.C. neighborhoods to provide emergency communication links between neighborhood streets and local fire stations. With the introduction of the 911 emergency call system in the 1970s, these fire call boxes became obsolete.
The Burleith Citizens Association, which has represented the interests of Burleith citizens since 1925, sponsored the restoration of the fire call boxes. This call box was restored in 2015 with generous donations from the residents and friends of Burleith through the Burleith Community Fund.
Erected 2015 by Burleith Citizens Association.
