The original Station 20 was located at the old Barnum Town Hall Building at 560 Knox Court. The second floor was condemned in the early 1900’s and subsequently the second floor was demolished. The first floor was remodeled as the Barnum Fire Station, the basement was occupied by the jail and Hose Co. 20 was organized on March 24, 1912. Hose Co. 20 was replaced by a motorized Engine Co. in 1927. On July 21, 1930 after the City of Denver annexed the area a new station was built at 501 Knox Court.
