Fire Station No. 10

2804 Lipscomb St. - 1910 (CFW)


As the city was growing southward, it hired Sanguinet & Staats to design this fire station on the southwest corner of W. Cantey & Lipscomb. This was one of three fire stations that Sanguinet & Staats designed for the city in 1910. The other two are Fire Station No. 5 at 503 Bryan Ave. and Fire Station No. 12 at 2410 Prospect. Innis-Graham Construction Co. built this building for a cost of $10,662.30. This structure is rectangular in plan and is built out of red brick. It is very similar to the two other stations that the architectural firm designed at the same time. A newer Fire Station No. 10 was built further south on Hemphill Street, and after the Fire Department relocated the station, the building served as a maintenance building for the FWFD. In more recent times, the building has become a community center where the Fort Worth Independent School District offers free adult education classes.
