Hilo, Hawaii’s Central Fire Station was constructed during the late 1930s with the assistance of federal Public Works Administration (PWA) funds. The PWA contributed nearly half the project cost by way of a grant of $35,100; the final cost of the project was $71,919.
Construction on the station began in November 1938 and was completed September 1939.
