It’s a building that was born to serve. Since 1938, the Fenton Fire Hall has stood on the corner between a waterfall behind Fenton’s City Hall and the Saarinen-designed community center. Since 1938, it has stood for more than just the home for the volunteer firefighters. It stood for service in the form of those who bravely bolted out of bed and into their boots racing to those in need. It stood for pancake breakfasts, parades and the kind of community chatter that goes down best with a bowl of chili and a beer. And its stood for something that has what it takes to stand the test of time.

The long and short of it, this building means more than bricks and mortar to a lot of people. As the Fenton Fire Hall Taproom and Kitchen, we’re out to respect the building at every turn and deliver the kind of grub that’s as honest as the building its served in. Woodfired grill. Legendary Mac & Cheese. 48 beers on tap. And all the care that the Union Joints family can put into a place. It’s our honor to serve. From all of us, thank you for having us.

    When a man becomes a fireman his greatest act of bravery has been accomplished. What he does after that is all in the line of work.
