This one of a kind property is truly the way to experience historic Wilmington….
In April 1915, Engine Company 2 began operation at 5th and Castle Streets. Their new station housed six men, two horses, and a two-horse hose wagon. Designed by local architect James F. Gause, Jr., the Italianate structure also housed a bell relocated from the corner of 4th and Dock Streets. The bell sounded alarms until the last fire horse was retired in 1918. In 1956, Engine 2 relocated to the new Headquarters Station on Dock Street.
Once the bunk house to the firemen, this spacious second floor apartment with open floor plan, has recently undergone an outstanding renovation. The gracious apartment is 1709 square feet of light & luxury. Decorated by an acclaimed designer, with understated historic detail throughout, this unique and very large space combines comfort and privacy with a refreshingly hip style.
