Fire Station 1 located at Colfax Ave. & Broadway, dedicated January 2nd 1882, called “Broadway Fire Station” and was home to the Broadway Hose Co. No. 6, a volunteer company organized on February 27, 1881. This station was in service until 1909 when it was torn down to make room for a monument to the pioneers who crossed the plains and settled in Denver

Fire Station 1 located at Tremont Pl. and opened in 1909, and in 1925 major renovations were done to make room for motorized fire apparatus and crews including replacing the wooden apparatus floor with concrete and converting the second floor hayloft into a locker room and kitchen. The station closed in 1975 and reopened as the Denver Fire Department Museum in 1980.
