Donate to the renovation fund to help keep our station in service


Station 19 is Atlanta's oldest continuously operating fire station.  Located in the heart of the historic Virginia Highland neighborhood, the station has been a local landmark for more than 90 years.

The City of Atlanta has plans to close the station in 2016.  Based on its age, the station is automatically on the replacement list. This decision has not been announced to the community at large, though, and key constituents in the neighborhood are very concerned about the possible loss of this historic resource that is central to our safety and community life. Interested citizens can help protect the station by donating funds to help renovate it.

Our building is in good structural condition but needs basic repairs.  A neighborhood committee consisting of architects, historians, preservationists, community leaders and contractors has made recommendations to renovate and update the building in partnership with the Atlanta Fire Department and the City of Atlanta.

Protecting our station will require community support.  To date, nearly $80,000 has been raised.  Another $220,000 is needed to keep No. 19 operating in a safe and efficient manner for another 50 years.  Our goal is to raise those funds by December 2015 so we can renovate the station and keep it in-service.
