The Lake Street Fire Station is an historic fire station at 2 Lake Street in Gardner, Massachusetts. The 2.5 story Italianate brick building was built in 1884, and originally housed a school on the second floor, which moved out in 1890. The station originally had four bays for firetrucks, and a tower for drying hoses. The tower has been removed, and a modern addition added three truck bays.[2]

The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980,[1] and included in the West Gardner Square Historic District in 1985.[2]
