All renovations to Washington No. 1 Firehouse (c. 1843) housing our law firm are now completed and the Historical Site Marker for “Old Brad” is has been installed!
Who Is Old Brad?
Named for company member, John O. Bradfield, Old Brad, the first service horse in the Baton Rouge Fire Department, is buried in front of his beloved Washington No. 1 Firehouse. He served for 28 years, actively for 15.
After retiring, he was allowed to graze freely in the city and continued responding to alarms on his own until his death in 1908.
Loved by his company and the community, he was given a hero’s burial.
