Fort Worth Off The Beaten Path: 102 reviews and 203 photos


Herman Paul Koeppe of Wyatt C. Hedrick's office designed this facility which is actually two separate buildings. The larger building is the station itself, and the smaller building is a Fire Alarm Signal Station. These buildings are good examples of the Zigzag Moderne Style of the Art Deco era. One notable feature of the building is a 70 foot high siren tower located to the rear of the Fire Station. The tower looks like a miniature version of the Will Rogers Pioneer Tower, designed by Koeppe a few years later. As with many Zigzag Moderne buildings, the fire station uses ornate brick work to carry out the design. The building is still used by the Fort Worth Fire Department as the Central Station. The Alarm Signal Station also houses the Code Enforcement Division for the City of Fort Worth. R.F. Ball was the General Contractor for the building.http://www.fortwortharchitecture.com/fire2.htm
