Tripadvisors tilnærming til anmeldelser
Hver Tripadvisor-anmeldelse går gjennom et automatisert sporingssystem før den legges ut. Dette systemet samler inn informasjon som svarer på følgende spørsmål: Hvordan, hva, hvor og når. Hvis systemet oppdager noe som muligens strider imot retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet, blir anmeldelsen ikke publisert.
Når systemet oppdager et problem, kan en anmeldelse automatisk avvises, sendes til anmelderen for bekreftelse eller gjennomgås manuelt av teamet vårt av innholdsspesialister. Disse spesialistene jobber døgnet rundt for å opprettholde kvaliteten av anmeldelsene på nettstedet vårt.
Teamet vårt sjekker hver anmeldelse som er lagt ut på nettstedet og bestrides av fellesskapet vårt for ikke å møte retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet.

Really, it's one large fire engine and one rather interesting very small and early pumper. But the history you come away with is largely what you take in. If you are in the square at Olvera drop by, but don't make this a destination.

In una città come Los Angeles, persino un modesto edificio in mattoni rossi di fine '800 si carica di fascino storico: la linda, pulita struttura che oggi si affaccia sulla Old Plaza ha visto tempi polverosi e turbolenti, in ambienti dove il legno era praticamente l'unico materiale da costruzione e la fauna umana che qui viveva non era meno infiammabile...

The museum is quite small, but it's free and interesting so definitely worth a visit if you're nearby.

In the days when many buildings were wooden and thus in great risk of devastating fires the firemen and engines stationed here were key in helping to save lives.

It was built in 1884 and served as a fire station only until 1897, largely because motorised fire engines were then becoming more common.

During those many years until becoming a museum in 1960 it has had many uses, including saloon, market and drugstore.

It has an evocative collection of fire engines and artefacts, all aided by the great guides who were always ready to relate aspects of its history.

Very interesting stop. We were pushed for time as we were part of a larger tour, but this is a fascinating stop to learn the history is LA’s first firefighters.

Located in El Pueblo de Los Angeles Historical Monument, the Old Plaza Firehouse was built in 1884 and is today a museum that showcases 19th century fire fighting equipment. Right until mid-19th century, the City of Los Angeles had no fire department, firefighting equipment or fire stations.

If a fire broke out, the neighbours pitched in to put it out. This obviously was an unsatisfactory state of affairs and in 1869, local citizens decided to create a volunteer fire department.

After the first group of volunteers resigned since the city was unwilling to buy horses to pull the fire engine, two volunteer companies called Volunteer 38s (with 38 members) and Confidence No. 2 were formed.

The two volunteer companies apparently competed to see who could arrive first at the scene of a fire! This also coincided with the City Council agreeing to buy a pair of horses to draw the fire engine.

The Plaza Firehouse was the very first fire station built in Los Angeles to house firefighters and firefighting equipment. Architect William Boring designed the structure.

The horses were stabled inside the fire station on the ground floor and a turntable on the floor (clearly visible in the pictures attached to this review) dispensed with the problem of backing the horses in or out!

The firefighters were on the higher floor and when the fire alarm sounded, they slid down a brass pole to the ground floor.

Rather sadly, the ownership of the Plaza Firehouse site came into dispute and the court decided in favour of the litigants Mrs L M Bigelow and Griffin Johnston. The lease with them expired in 1897 and the decision was taken that all future fire stations would be built only on state-owned land.

Over the next six decades the Plaza Firehouse was variously used as a saloon, cigar store, cheap boarding house, poolroom and allegedly even as a house of ill repute! The state purchased the building in 1954 as a part of creating the El Pueblo de Los Angeles Historic Monument.

The structure was restored, firefighting equipment and memorabilia was put in place and Plaza Firehouse was dedicated as California Historic Landmark No. 730. Today, even for casual uninformed visitors, the firehouse makes for a fascinating journey through the evolution of firefighting.

The Plaza Firehouse is open Tuesday through Sunday 10am to 3pm.

Statua ben visibile che si trova nel piccolo parco tra la Union station e la piazza del pueblo, poco prima di attraversare la strada.. molto rappresentativa e significativa per la gente.

The Museum is not large, but there is an little information brochure that is loaded with the history of Los Angeles fire fighting. This was the first fire station in Los Angeles built by the city. There is a fire fighting wagon and behind it, stalls for the horses. The horses would walk forward and practically automatically into the harness. There is a box that was once connected to fire call boxes all over town. In an emergency, a person would activate the call box and its location would be noted in this box. There is a fireman pole, but no longer a hole in the ceiling to slide through.

While the museum is small, it is part of El Pueblo de Los Angeles Historic Park, which has almost a dozen small museums and tours, events, food, and shopping. I have spent a full day at the park and needed to come back.

ロスアンゼルス発祥の地とされるエルプエブロ州立史跡公園内の広場に面して建つ昔の消防署です。中は木の車輪の古い消防車などが展示されています。無料でサクッと見学出来ていい所です。オルベラ街に行くついでに立ち寄れます。

Just a short walk from Union Station the Plaza Firehouse Museum is well worth a visit. the guy there the day we went was full of great info and really helpful. The displays are fantastic and the old pole the firemen came down is still there. This is a free museum so make sure you give a donation so that future generations will be able to marvel at this significant piece of Los Angeles history.
