This old Dance Hall sits in the middle of the block facing the road, and is typical of any of the old time Dance Hall of the 1920''s and beyond that used to be all over and around New Orleans.

Firemans Hall was situated at 307, 4th Street, Westwego, and it used to be one of the Stomping Grouds of the "Kid Thomas" Band, where it played neibourhood dances. Then in August 2005 HURRICAN ''KATRINA'' CAME ALONG.
