On Church Street, next to the city building, is the St. Croix No. 1 Firehouse, which has been a staple fixture in Calais for over 100 years. Though the operational days of the firehouse are long behind it, the building and its history are still very much a part of the Calais community. For hosting meetings and events, as well as the beloved community Christmas party, the Firehouse is an important part of moving forward while honoring the past.
