Firehouse No. 1
1888, Bulgar and Rapp. 314 N. Commercial St. (southeast corner of Cedar St.)

Light sandstone quoins contrast dramatically with the red brick skin of this narrow, two-story building with an asymmetrical bell tower. The city hall, city jail, and other city offices as well as Trinidad's fire department were housed here until the new city hall opened in 1909.
