Fire Station No. 1, Casper Wyoming
This is Casper's old Fire Station No. 1, now a commercial office building. The newer looking brick work on the right is an addition.
This is a bit out of the scope of this blog, as this old fire station has no painted signs on it. Still, it does have some decorative work identifying it as a fire station. This fire station was still in use as a fire station as late as the 1970s, and after the last fire trucks were moved two blocks to the north to a new station, it hung on for some time in other uses for the Casper Fire Department. As can be seen from the details at the top of the building, it was built in 1921.
