"Oldest Active Firehouse in the State"

The Most Historical Fire House in Maryland

Maryland is home to many historic fire companies, some of which date as far back as the early nineteenth century.  Most old firehouses now serve as other multi-purpose uses, but in old cities like Hagerstown, there are still a fair amount of older ones that are still actively operated by the fire department.

Many of them share a rich heritage.  Fire historian and intern with Preservation Maryland, Kurt Waters, has documented some of the state’s oldest and most unique firehouses that are still standing today.

The Hagerstown Firehouse of the First Hagerstown Hose Company, located on S. Potomac Street just south of Washington Street, is the oldest active firehouse in the entire State of Maryland. 

The building was constructed in 1881 of a unique Italianate architecture.  Today this firehouse is home to Hagerstown Engine Co. 1 which houses Engine #1 and Reserve Engine #1 as well as the Museum of Firefighting History!
