It began in 1984 when the Indianapolis Firefighters Union purchased and restored the abandoned 1872 Fire Station No.2 on a disinvested Mass Ave. After years of sweat equity it became the Union Hall and Fire Museum, the latter a key part of the fire safety education program. This complex is now being expanded to better serve the over two-thousand active and retired firefighters that comprise the membership, while also serving the community with meeting and performance space in the now-vibrant Mass Ave Theater and Arts District. The Firefighters have made their new meeting hall, as well as their open space, available for community celebrations. 

The exciting Art Park[ing] Court and its heroic edge, the Promethean Walk sculpture, will give those events a new sense of place and identity as an active node at the Mass Ave-College Avenue intersection and point of interest along the Indianapolis Cultural Trail.
