Quinsigamond Firehouse

Someone had mentioned that this home (which I’ve been in love with since I was about seven) was featured in Preservation Worcester’s Most Endangered Properties list.

Also on the Endangered Properties list are the Mission Chapel (which is about number one in my properties to buy if I suddenly come into millions of dollars) and the Quinsigamond Firehouse.

Seriously, though, don’t you see this:

and dream of this:

    The firehouse is for sale if you really want it! Call Sally at Herbie Berg’s florist.

    Yes I do dream of that!
    I’ve actually been to the Natick location for a wedding reception and it was a great venue!

      @ Sprout — This is one of those “if only I had money and my house was finally finished” dreams.

      @ Lee — I have a friend who volunteers regularly at TCAN. Great use of space!!

      @ Joe — I suppose I could turn this into a larger rant about the city missing opportunities to turn these spaces into multi-purpose community centers — a community library like this one, a place for after-school programs and for seniors to hang out in — but I’ll refrain.

    The Melanie Mayron character on “Thirtysomething” had a house that was an old firehouse. It was very cool.

    I always wanted to drop into the kitchen via a brass firepole when I was kid just waking up. Alas, maybe someday….
