The Firehouse is actually located in a historic fire station! The main facility, a two-story building with offices on the first floor and learning spaces on the second, served as the fire station for the city of Avondale prior to its annexation into Birmingham in 1910. The main facility is on the National Historic Register, and, over the past 100 years, it has hosted many different tenants, including a barber shop and an advertising agency. On the side of the building, visitors will find a two-story mural by Austin-based visual artist Tim Kerr. The mural features illustrated profiles of Sun Ra, Angela Davis, Spider Martin, and Fred Shuttlesworth.
