Built in 1912, Engine Co. No. 28 answered its first emergency call on July 23, 1913. At the time, it was the most expensive fire
station in Los Angeles with a construction cost of more than $60,000. It proved to be a good investment for the city. Over the next five decades, it would respond to many such calls. The station's active service ended in 1969, and over the coming years the building fell into disrepair. In 1983, a five-year preservation effort began which transformed Engine Co. No. 28 into its current blend of historic architecture and contemporary design. It is now home to a popular restaurant, Engine Co. No. 28, a theatre organization, and a law firm.
For Benchmark seekers, there is an interesting benchmark on the wall of the building. It's the only vertically placed benchmark
that I've seen.
