Good Intent Hose Company, Lower Washington St., Brookline Village
Start of Boylston St. to the right going west; lower Washington St. toward Boston to the left. This brick building, constructed at significant cost, was completed in January 1872 and headed the town’s progression to a well-organized fire-fighting system after years of more haphazard efforts. It housed a hose carriage for the Good Intent Hose Company No. 1. and the Thomas Parsons Steam Fire Engine.
