The Stoneham Firestation is a historic fire station at Central and Emerson Streets in Stoneham, Massachusetts. The two story red brick Renaissance Revival building was built in 1916, and continues to serve as the town's central fire station. Its most prominent feature is its four story hose drying tower, which is reminiscent of Italian Renaissance-era towers.[2]

The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984,[1] and included as a contributing property to the Central Square Historic District in 1990.[2]
