Engine House No. 40, Sheraden

Engine House No. 40

Haven’t we been here before?

Firehouse in Sheraden

This firehouse looks awfully familiar for a very good reason. It is a mirror image of Engine House No. 57 by the same architects (Thomas W. Boyd & Co.) in Brookline:

Engine Company No. 57
This is the one in Brookline.

The one in Brookline was built in 1910. A city architectural survey dates this one in Sheraden to 1928, but that is probably a misprint for 1908, since a brick firehouse appears here on a 1910 map, and this style would have been terribly old-fashioned in 1928.

Engine House No. 40
This is the one in Sheraden again.
