neighbors have proposed various ideas for the future use of
Old 21. Among the ideas floated for the long-term use
of the building have been: community meeting space, Museum
of the Haight, fire museum, a center for music instruction
and performance, Victorian artifact store, coffee shop &
fire department gift store and bed and breakfast.
Most neighbors believe that the most important way to preserve
the memory of the many firefighters who served there, is to
keep it open to the public in some form. How this occurs
is still to be determined. Old 21 has protected
the community for more than one hundred years and most in
the community would like to see Old 21 remain open to
the public as a reminder of the service it provided.
