Engine House #5 is a beautiful building in our town.
It's a Firehouse that was originally built in nearby Grand Rapids in 1880. It had fallen into disrepair and was going to be demolished when a man from our town, whose business is in old fire equipment, bought it. He took it apart brick by brick, and reassembled it here.
Here's an old picture of it in it's original spot.
And here's what it looks like now. It's used as a museum that houses old fire trucks and fire equipment. It also has a section that serves as an arts and crafts store.
This year they lit it up for Christmas and I love passing it each morning on my way to work.
Doesn't that old fire truck look beautiful in the lit up doorway?
I thought you would enjoy a little Christmas joy from my town!
