The Somerville Street station was erected in 1906, but it wasn't until January 11, 1908 that the first companies were organized. The apparatus consisted of a horse drawn steamer, hook & ladder and a hose wagon. Ladder 7 had the distinction of having the last horse drawn apparatus in the city. The station received its first motorized apparatus in June, 1924.
Engine and Truck 7 are still housed at the original location. The station underwent a major renovation in the spring of 2000 to what you see today. The building was deemed a historical site and the original structure was kept intact during the construction. One of the most noticeable changes that occurred during the renovation was the new apparatus bays opening onto Hall Street instead of Somerville Street as it had for the previous 92 years.
