Long Description:
The Winfield Fire Department began as a volunteer department. Chief S. E. Compton moved his department into the new City of Winfield building in 1886, sharing it with all the other city departments. Somewhere around 1903 Winfield Fire became a full paid fire department working 24-hour shifts. The station remained at 817 Fuller, as it has for over 120 years.

This fine old building displays two years on the stone facade, 1886 and 1931.
Year built or dedicated as indicated on the structure or plaque: 1886 and 1931

Full Inscription (unless noted above):
