Inscription.

In 1939 this new brick, two-story fire house was built. Fire Department historian B H Shipley, Jr and bride resided on the 2nd floor for seven years. It was also a trolley terminal. The HoCo Volunteer Fire Dept. operated here until 1997, when the new Montgomery Road station opened. This building was then sold and converted to commercial use.

2. Third Ellicott City Firehouse. Maryland Historic Trust. “In 1938 Howard County purchased the vacant lot 52 on Main Street near Fels Lane for a new firehouse. The county received federal funding through the Federal Emergency Administration of Public Works in 1938 for the new firehouse. It was designed by architect Hubert G. Jory, and Mancini Construction Co. of Baltimore was the low bidder, at $33,684. The modillion cornice and Flemish bond brickwork are Colonial Revival details, and the lantern on the roof is a close copy of the lantern on ‘Doughoregan Manor.’” (Submitted on December 23, 2017, by Allen C. Browne of Silver Spring, Maryland.)
