When I was growing up in Chicago, in the late '50's-60's, I remember going to the library and then the adjacent Fire Station. (Michelle Obama later grew up in this neighborhood- South Shore.)
Brian, for you to research, what is on the site where the huge 19th Century Chicago Fire started? I find the answer very ironic.

Well, I know it's not Mrs. O'Leary's Creamery and Dairy! But a little research does reveal that's where the Chicago Fire Academy currently resides. Thanks for the great info WRT!

The Denver Firefighters Museum, 1326 Tremont Pl., has a Feb. exhibit on Denver Black Firefighters. See their website for more information on this and other upcoming exhibits.
Initial information came to me from a "Denver Post" article.
