Fodor's Review

Following the harrowing fire of 1912, Fort Lauderdale residents pushed for more protection, finally opening what became known as Fire Station No. 3 (later No. 8) in 1927. This landmark, designed by architect Francis Abreu and retired from active duty in 2004, now functions as a historical, cultural, and educational facility with an expanding array of 1920s' era equipment including a 1928 Ahrens-Fox piston pumper, as well as a 1942 parade engine. There's also a vintage police car. Rumor has it the fire station is haunted.
