Firehouse Gallery ExhibitSee a historic jail, museum and exhibits. The Firehouse Center and Gallery used for exhibits, concerts, meetings, lectures and other fun activities.

In 1914, William Augustus Edwards, a prominent Atlanta architect designed the City Hall and Firehouse in the corner of Crawford and Water Streets in Downtown Bainbridge, Georgia.

Through the years community life revolved about the building as it served as City Hall, Library, and Public Safety Building. From opening day until the last fire truck pulled away, the city depended in the Firehouse for protection of its lives and property.

The building reflects the Mission style architecture popular in the early part of this century for public buildings. Basically made of brick and cast stone, Mission buildings feature shaped parapet walls, arched doorways, classical entrances, and broad overhangs. Many of these public buildings have been razed in the path of progress.

The Bainbridge building is the only example of Mission architecture in this part of the state. Considering the age and numerous changes that have occurred over time, the structure is in good condition. Although generally concealed, original detail is evident throughout.

Now this historic building is assuming a new role in community life as a cultural center. Following renovation and, later, restoration, it will serve as home to the Bainbridge-Decatur County Council for the Arts and the Decatur County Historical Society.

The complex is located in the Downtown Historic District which was listed as a National Historic Landmark in November, 1987.

Free admission for tours.
