Walking around downtown Ann Arbor, from a distance, I saw the tower on this building which I thought was an old church, but then as I got closer I noticed the doors on the front and then realized it was an old fire station. It is now the the Ann Arbor Hands On Museum but above the doors carved into the stonework it says “Engine House 1882”. a building like that its easy to imagine the horses coming out of those doors pulling a steam pumper galloping down the Ann Arbor streets off to fight a fire. The Bell tower was used to summon the volunteer fireman to the fire station to fight a fire. if you want to know more about the fire station, I found this interesting article HERE by the Ann Arbor Observer.
