Originally a house, the building was converted to house the newly-formed Morgan Hook & Ladder Company in the 1890s. The bell tower was added to provide a fire bell and a place to hang hoses for drying. The building served the fire company until the 1920s and it housed several businesses before being abandoned. Restoration was undertaken in the 1990s.
