Hyde Park Fire Station

Painting completed in: 2018

The Hyde Park Fire Station is located at 4301 Speedway in Austin's Hyde Park Neighborhood and was built in 1929. A threat to close this Station was met with a strong protest and lead to the formation of the Hyde Park Neighborhood Association which became a leader in the Historic Preservation movement in Austin. We raised our children in Hyde Park so I just had to include this Station in my Fire Station Calendar!
