A little history
The original Engine 17/Ladder 7 firehouse opened on February 15, 1928. It was built on the site of two old firehouses that dated back to the annexation of the Town of Dorchester to the City of Boston.
The firehouse is located directly across the prominent white-spired First Parish Church.
