Cedar Rapids Airbnb is an authentic 1916 fire station [PHOTOS]

If these walls could talk, indeed.

A sacred property is now for rent that once housed the firefighters of Hose Company # 4 in Cedar Rapids. Wouldn’t it be an honor to stay under the same roof that some of our bravest heroes once called their headquarters? For $ 142 a night, you can rent the beautiful space at “Sue’s Place” via Airbnb it is also an authentic fire station from 1916.

It is located in what is now known as the NewBo District, above the stunning retail space that once housed the Fire Truck and close to Almost Famous Popcorn. Handy if you run out of snacks while watching a movie, isn’t it?

The Airbnb announcement specifies that it was an apartment on the second floor for a rotating team of 4 firefighters. 4 bedrooms, 2 beds and 1 bathroom make up this space.

Due to flooding and a derecho in recent years, the sturdy brick building remains in near-original condition. Despite the minor noise from the bustling retail and entertainment culture that is now a widespread part of the NewBo neighborhood, there’s a white noise machine in the sleeping area and even free earplugs.

It has air conditioning and a smart TV, as well as a memory foam mattress for the king-size bed. Above the king-size bed is an amazing wall mural featuring the men who called it their quarters.

In fact, there are more amenities than you could imagine for yourself and up to three of your friends inside the gates of what is a largely untouched property dating back to the 1900s.
