The Old Firehouse

The Old Firehouse is located between Seventh and Eighth Avenues on Main Street. It gives homage to the heritage of the local fire department that was established in the latter part of the eighteenth century. Fires could be extensive and leave remains that mimicked World War II scenes. Pine Bluff’s equipment was not built to handle such enormous flames; some of the equipment they used is located on the right side of the mural, and a reproduction of one of the local firehouses is in the back. Chiefs George Alford and Ray Jacks are also featured on the mural and both gave the Pine Bluff Fire Department long services.
