AS part of the 100 In A Day festival a new plaque is being unveiled by the City of London, with assistance from our Cultural Heritage Specialist Tara Jenkins in her capacity as a member of the London Advisory Committee on Heritage (LACH). This marker commemorates the rich history of Fire Hall No.4 which was constructed in 1909. It was designed by architect Arthur Nutter in an Italianate villa style, featuring a tall Tuscan tower that was historically used to dry leather hoses. The Fire Hall remains operational, the building that was originally constructed for horse drawn fire trucks is now adapted to modern technology, while retaining its original charm. The 100 In A Day festival encourages people to create and attend positive events in their communities, so after you see the plaque unveiling why not check out some other events? Hamilton and Ottawa are holding their own festivals on the same day.
Tara will be sharing some insights on the building’s architectural history as part of the unveiling, which is taking place June 3, at 2pm. We hope to see you there!
