History:

After purchasing this home with attached garage, the LFD renovated it into a fire station in a mere 3 months, thus creating Lexington’s first rural firehouse. When first built, Station #17 reduced response times to this part of the county by 7-10 minutes and greatly reduced area fire insurance rates. Despite starting out as a rural station, #17 becomes less rural every year with the rapid expansion of commercial and residential areas in this part of the county.
