Station 6’s history dates back to the volunteer companies in the 1860’s. Station 6 officially opened on the lower level of City Hall on May 1, 1883 at 14th Street between Lawrence and Larimer. City Hall housed a 3,600 lb bell that was forged from a Spanish American war cannon captured at the Battle of Vera Cruz (forged in 1847). The bell from the Central Station was used to signal box alarms in the city. On November 30, 1901 an arsonist set fire to City Hall which collapsed the bell tower and caused significant damage. The firehouse returned to service after repairs were made, and since the Gamewell system was now transmitting box alarms to individual firehouse gongs, the bell tower was not replaced.
