The building at 90 North Broad Street was constructed in 1935. for the Winder Post Office.

In 1964, Winder City Hall moved into this building after the Postal Service built its new facility City hall remained at this location until October 2004. 

Upon city hall's departure, the mayor and council turned the building's upstairs offices over to the Winder Fire Department. On November 14, 2005, after more than 13 months of remodeling and renovation, the fire department offices opened for business, where the department still remains today.

On February 7, 2006, a proclamation was issued from the mayor naming the fire headquarters building after Councilman Billy Sheridan (deceased).
