San Francisco Landmark #89
Engine Company No. 21
1152 Oak Street Between Divisadero and Broderick
Built 1893

The firehouse was designed by Henrikson & Mahoney and built by R. Doyle & Sons in 1893. Henrikson & Mahoney designed two similar firehouses, one on Washington Street which is San Francisco Landmark 93 and one at 2545 Folsom Street which was razed.

The old firehouse was retired fom active duty after about seventy years of service, but it is still owned by the San Francisco Fire Department.

Two other city landmarks stand directly across Oak Street, the Phelps House and the Mish House.
