Firehouse Origin

The design of our Firehouse was based primarily on the design of an historic firehouse. ocated in Harper's Ferry, West it was the place that abolitionist John Brown and his gang were arrested by a group of Marines led by Robert E. Lee. Brown attempted to steal
guns from the federal armory in Harper’s Ferry in order to arm slaves and create an uprising. His attempt failed and he holed up in the local firehouse until Lee and his Marine captured them. Brown was later hanged.
