    From the agents FB page (link):
    “***On the market for the first time in 50 years***

    Fire Station 13 at 3924 Charles Page Blvd.
    Built in 1931, this Art Deco fire station is a great example of the style of noted Tulsa architect AJ Love. An active fire station from 1931-64, this building has been used as storage for the past two decades. It is in desperate need of TLC. We are seeking the right buyer that will respect the station’s historical and architectural significance and repurpose the building responsibly. If you, or someone you know, might be interested, please give me a call.”

    Oh my word, I’m in LOVE. Bet you this gem doesn’t stay on the market long! Hopefully it will get a style sensitive conversion for whatever type of use the new owner envisions.

    Love the brick wainscoting,tile on bathroom floor,windows,wooden lockers.If someone restores it for a home,they should consider taking CPR & basic first aid.They might get people (new to or not from area)stopping by for chocking,heartattack,etc. ?

    Okay, the neighborhood isn’t exactly the most desirable for a residence, but otherwise… this building is really cool, both inside & out, and could become a great house!

    What a charming building. It would make a great place for some small business. Not a big fan of the vine climbing all over the building, though. It may look romantic or even add to the charm but it does more damage that most people realize.

    Perfect for over the road trucker. My wife and I were OTR team truck drivers and were always on the lookout for a firehouse to call home. We never found anything that fit our budget but this would have been perfect. My goal was to go out for a couple weeks then come home and just pull the truck in and do my maintenance. Retired now but hope someone with the same dream can make it happen.

    I love it and the neighborhood! The train tracks across the street might bring trains, which would be OK if they’re not running all night. It’s so much a great plains neighborhood, reminds me of my childhood home in Kansas.

      Having checked the street view, I would strongly recommend that you exercise ‘due diligence’ if you pursue the purchase of this property.
      It appears that the neighbouring residence to the west not only has a fleet of vehicles parked partially on the firehouse driveway, that driveway would also appear to be how the neighbours access their parking area.
      Perhaps the firehouse is situated in some sort of zero lot line arrangement, and the exterior wall is virtually on the property line (I would think that unusual for a public building, especially one designed with windows in that wall).
      Otherwise, it could be that the neighbours are encroaching on the firehouse lot, and if that use is of longstanding, they might actually be able to claim unfettered use of that area by virtue of adverse possession … or, at least, might maintain that they have a right-of-way.
      Regardless of how appealing a building is, inconsiderate neighbours and property boundary disputes are not a fate I would wish upon you.
      Be sure and do your homework.

        I’m not able to go directly to the deed search on the county website and don’t know how accurate Google is but…

        Aerial view of property outline: https://goo.gl/maps/qvYbpCGWzW72

        Looks like the neighbors are at least staying in the boundary. I don’t think the place is for just anybody, probably the next owner will either buy it for non-living purposes or someone that can deal with the area for a home. It was too cool not to share at least.

    So sad that someone stripped the insides of the building – where are the doors and where did the light fixtures go (see FB info listed above for pictures of before someone took everything out). So sad – hope they have everything safely stored!

    Having been a firefighter/EMT, that would have made an incredible home. The apparatus bay has infinite possibilities, a family/media room with a loft library/craft area, repurpose a few call boxes for lighting…
