The James Geddes Engine Company No. 6 building was constructed in 1886. The former firehouse is in a Victorian style. At the time of construction, the fire department used horse-drawn vehicles thus explaining the fairly narrow front garage door. The circular tower to the right of the building had the fireman pole which is still present. the fire station was named for James Geddes, a surveyor of the railroad line between Louisville and Nashville in the 1850s. After sitting vacant for a number of years the building has now been converted to attorneys’ offices.
The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978
Parking is available behind the building or street parking nearby.
