History:

Probably Lexington’s most well-known firehouse, Station #16 is a unique underground structure nicknamed The Cave. While most assume the station was built into the side of a hill, Station #16 is actually a concrete dome covered by earth. The design was selected for its energy efficiency and its ability to remain a steady temperature even if power is lost.
