West Seattle/High Point - Station 37 - Historic
About the Station
Fire Station 37, located at 7700 35th Avenue SW, houses one engine company and a reserve engine.
Since the old station and site were too small to accommodate modern fire operations, a new station was built on the southeast corner of 35th Avenue SW and SW Holden Street.
The Seattle Landmarks Board designated the current station, built in 1925, as a landmark in 2004. Click here to see the first part of the landmark nomination report.
