The historic Silver Spring Fire Station was originally built as The Armory but when the new Armory was built in 1927 at the corner of Wayne Avenue and Pershing Drive, the building was occupied by the Silver Spring Fire Department.
The Silver Spring Fire Station #1 has moved to the new fire station building across Georgia Avenue next to the historic Silver Spring B&O Train Station.
Hook and Ladder Brewing Company, headquartered in downtown Silver Spring is working to covert the Historic Silver Spring Fire Station into a brew-pub. Recently Hook and Ladder won the Second Annual Beer Madness Tournament sponsored by the Washington Post. Silver Spring is looking forward to opening day this fall and the preservation of an historic Silver Spring landmark by putting it to good use.
In the mean time you can try out Hook and Ladder brews at several local restaurants including Mayorga Coffee Factory and Ray's the Classic.
