National Register #91001537
Firehouse No. 3
1215 19th Street
Built 1893

This eclectic structure has an unusually handsome design for so functional a building. The classically inspired pediments with the fire department symbols and the finely decorated frieze areas are among the city's better small-scaled examples of such detailing.

The rusticated stonework details suggest Romanesque Revival themes. This mixture of modes is representative of this era although these types of interpretations of classical motifs are not widely represented in Sacramento until after the turn of the century.
