This firehouse was built in 1875 and Engine Company 22 moved in on July 3, 1875. The company moved in from a firehouse on Parker (now Hemenway) Street in the Back Bay.
This firehouse was located at approximately 132 Dartmouth Street, near the corner of Harwich Street and opposite Buckingham Street in the South End section of the city. The location now is covered by a portion of the Copley Place Mall and Shopping Center.
The firehouse on Dartmouth Street was demolished to allow for an expansion of the railroad right-of-way in the area. The modern present-day Back Bay Station is located opposite where the Dartmouth Street firehouse once stood.
