website is dedicated to all of the firefighters who served
at Firestation 21 from 1893-1958.
21 is perhaps the most beloved building in the Haight-Divisadero
area cherished by neighbors for its historical importance
and recognized by the community at large as one of San Francisco's
most important landmarks. It is also a significant structure
to many current and former San Francisco Firefighters who
recognize the magnitude of the contributions that past firefighters
made protecting this part of the City. Firestation 21 is the
oldest firehouse still owned by the City of San Francisco.
This building's importance to the
community cannot be understated. We hope this website will
provide a greater understanding about the building and its
significance to the community.
