Fire Station No. 1 - Town of Gravenhurst

Fire Station 1

Fire Station No. 1

A single level building was built in 1969 on historic Harvie Street to house the Town's fire station and police station. In 1993 a two storey addition was made to the structure, which could accommodate the municipal offices that previously had been located in the Opera House. The fire station had been manned on a volunteer basis for most of the 20th century. The municipal office moved to its present location on Pineridge Gate in 2010. Today the former town hall continues as Gravenhurst Fire Station No. 1, as well as the OPP's Community Policing Office. A provincial plaque commemorating the founding of Gravenhurst is on the street corner and an exterior wall hosts one of the Town's heritage murals. The Mayor's Garden blooms outside in the summer.
