Twenty-Sixth of January

Local nameCalle 25 De Enero
LocationPonce, USA

Calle 25 de Enero is a street and historic Victorian village located in barrio Segundo in Ponce, Puerto Rico, built to house Ponce's volunteer firemen and their families, after the historic fire that took place in the city on 25 January 1899, in appreciation for their labor on that fateful day.This picturesque street is lined with 39 red-striped and black-striped houses, the local firefighters’ colors. The street takes its name from the historic fire that took place in the town on that day in 1899. Since then, and for a number of years, the city of Ponce built new homes on this street and then drew lots to see which of its firemen would be the lucky owners of these free new properties.
