Austin Fire Museum - Preserving The History And Traditions Of The Austin Fire Department.

New Acquisition

One of our newest acquisitions we have obtained is an old badge from West Austin Fire Company #7.  The West Austin #7 fire company was located in our current Fire Station #4 at 1000 Blanco St.  For this year’s Austin Fire Museum San Jacinto Celebration (April 21) we will be featuring an exhibit on the history of the Blanco St. fire station which served as West Austin #7 from 1904-1916 and Fire Station 4 from 1916-present.  This is the only current fire station in the Austin Fire Department that dates to the horse-drawn era of firefighting.
