The firemen who rode Chemical Truck No. 5 could not have foreseen a time when the chemicals stored at No. 351 would be manufactured by Roger & Gallet and Caswell-Massey. A bright red paint job helps evoke this building’s past as a fire house, which was in service until sometime in the mid-1940s. It was constructed in the very early 1850s, according to the Old Cape Cod Firehouses website. The town sold it in the late 1960s. The building has been owned since 2005 by Roberta “Birdie” Cornette and Evelynn “Lin” Gentemann. Their Good Scents store specializes in health and beauty aids.
