It’s hard to fathom that our neighborhood fire station opened its doors at 1908 Carleton Avenue 100 years ago. As the oldest operating fire station in Fort Worth, Station #18 is one of the most cherished buildings in Arlington Heights and in all of Fort Worth.

Arlington Heights Neighborhood Association, in conjunction with Crestline Area Neighborhood Association, is pulling out all the stops for this year’s centennial birthday party on Sunday October 22, from 3:30 pm until 7:00 pm.

The historic fire station will be open for touring.  Firemen and fire trucks from across the city will be parked out front, along with K-9 and arson units.  Lots of free food and libations from Ben E. Keith Distributors, Bluebonnet Bakery, Cookies by Design, Curly’s Frozen Custard, Nothing Bundt Cakes, Olivella’s Pizza, and Railhead Smokehouse.  Chefs from Winslow’s Wine Café and Roy Pope’s will be manning the grills.  Lots for the kiddos to do, including a bounce house, face painting, clowns, and family friendly games.  Tour the Fire Safety House and learn how to make your own home more safe.  Live music from Fort Worth firefighter Bob Jenkins, big band orchestra Maxwell Hall Jazz, and the Texas Girls Choir.

This is a dog-friendly event–we’ll have water for them.

We couldn’t put on this huge event without generous donors like Frost Bank, Texas Girls Choir and Thomas Place Community Center.  Thank you!
