Original Fairview Park Firehouse
HAMILTON TOWNSHIP PUBLIC LIBRARY LOCAL HISTORY COLLECTION
As previously mentioned, items from Fairview Park (DeCou Village) and Lalor Tract which border BSP and Deutzville will be presented. The above photograph depicts the original firehouse constructed in 1914 of the Fairview Park Volunteer Fire Company organized in 1914. The portion in the rear was constructed in 1928, the same year the company name was changed and incorporated as the DeCou Hose Company. These buildings on Ruskin Avenue were razed in April 1950 to make way for a new one-story firehouse to house three fire apparatus.
