Long Description:
Taken from their website:

Construction on the firehouse that is now the Pufferbelly Restaurant, was begun in 1907. It was built by the Constable Brothers Construction Co. at a cost of $14,889.00 and was completed in 1908. Fire House No. 1 enjoyed a long history of fire protection for its ward as well as a reputation for horseplay and good times which earned it the nickname "Detention Home." Local people may recall the Christmas railroad display the firemen arranged in the second floor dormitory area each year. The department stopped using the station in 1979.

The Pufferbelly on French Street recalls the nickname given to the steam pumpers and engines of the late 1800's.
