Fire Station #10 was designed by Harold Hite and opened in 1974, replacing an earlier bungalow-style station. The restricted lot size couldn’t accommodate a conventional station, so Hite had to create a design that was compact but also met the growing requirements of the fire department. The result was an unusual prairie modern style building that featured interesting angles and a tower that could be used to hang and dry out wet hoses. In 2017, voters passed a bond issue that included either relocating or replacing the aging station in the near future.
