TULSA, Okla. — An old Tulsa Fire Station is getting new life, thanks to a local couple.

Station 13 was in service with the city from 1933 to 1964. It was then being used as storage for car parts until last year, when Jackie and Chad Potter took it on as a passion project.

They’ve spent the past year renovating the space, while keeping as much of the original building as they could. It’s the same original layout, interior brick, and has quirky features like the original locker room.

Station 13 is now available as an indoor and outdoor event center for weddings, receptions, parties, and benefits. The Potters have already hosted a handful events since opening at the start of the year.

The Potters said they’ve gotten great feedback from the community, and also from current Station 13 firefighters who are excited to see the renovation.
