Hollis St. Fire Station (former) Additions – Framingham MA

Description

During 1934 the [C.W.A. and/or] F.E.R.A “thoroughly renovated and repaired” Framingham’s Hollis Street fire station, in addition to constructing “a new brick fireproof fire alarm signal building” in the rear of the station.

Later the W.P.A. sponsored a six-room addition to the building:

A brick addition, one story in height for a two-car garage, was constructed on the rear end of the Hollis St. Fire Station. Work was begun in December [1938]  on an addition to this building to provide an office for the chief and also three additional rooms for the firemen who are on duty at this station.

Work on the additions was completed in 1940. The building now houses an art center.
