The Liberty Fire House in Gold Hill was located along Main Street, near the Virginia and Truckee Railroad tracks. It was built during the era of the Big Bonanza, but by the time of this picture in the 1930s, it was on its last legs with a noticeable lean. It was demolished later in the 20th century. The bell tower was preserved and was incorporated into a small monument on the site of the old fire house. It is still there today.
