Station 50 – West End

The West End Hose Company is located at 1217 West Market St. This current site was purchased in December of 1891 and the building was constructed in 1897. The apparatus bay houses the Ladder and Squad with ample floor space, but limited height. E-One provided special engineering to lower the turntable so the Ladder truck would fit. The building features a social hall upstairs with a modern kitchen area for hosting fundraisers.
