The Virginia City building that hosts the Virginia City Firehouse was not always a firehouse.

According to the VisitVirginiaCityNv website, the building has "housed many diverse establishments including a broker’s business, a meat market, a saloon and a brewery."

"It was acquired by Storey County about 1930 and became the Storey County Fire Department until the 1960s when a larger, more modern firehouse was constructed," the website notes. "The building was restored as a firehouse museum in 1979 and contains a collection of fire engines and apparatus used in earlier times."
