Linden Fire Station (former) Expansion – Malden MA

Description

Works Progress Administration (W.P.A.) workers constructed an extension to the multi-purpose former community building and Linden Fire Station in Malden, Mass. WPA Bulletin:

A ward meeting place has been built, recreational quarters added and library floor space doubled by a recent WPA addition to the Linden Fire Station, and branch public library, Maiden. The addition is provided with modern heating, plumbing and electricity.

The expansion housed a small branch library, in addition to the fire station. The building has not been an active fire station or library for years, however, it remains the property of the City of Malden which utilizes it for other purposes.

    Additional information on the history of this fire house can be found in a historic building inventory which I prepared in 2019 on behalf of the Malden Historical Commission which can be found online at the Massachusetts Historical Commission’s Massachusetts Cultural Resources Information System (MACRIS)
