Story Hill Firehouse was built in 1927 as one of five bungalow-style firehouses in the city of Milwaukee. The building was in operation until 1998, when a new firehouse was built in the area. They opened in July 2019 as a new event venue with all its historic charm!

In December 2018, Janelle Meyer-Brown, owner of the event planning company, purchased Milwaukee Fire Department’s Fire House No. 35 and has renovated the firehouse into a very special event venue.
