History
The Firehouse was constructed in 1948 by the Sykesville Volunteer Fire Department . It was their fourth home. It represented a major fund-raising and building project by the entire community and was the first Sykesville firehouse built specifically as a fire house. The second floor was designed to provide a community events facility with a commercial kitchen. In 1984, the Fire Department sold the building to Greenberg Properties after building a new, much larger facility on Route 32.

Firehouse in 1995 before door replacement
January 1995 with 24' door in place. This is probably the general 1948 facade with a possible updating of the door.

In 1995, Greenberg removed the 24 foot-wide front overhead door and replaced it with show room windows and a double front door. A Baltimore formstone craftsman was hired to decorate the new section of the front facade with matching formstone.


Firehouse in 1995 with last coat of paint
March 1995. 24' door removed and replaced with two showroom windows and double front door.
Baltimore formstone craftsman created stucco to match the original stucco.



The detailed history of the building is included in Sykesville Past and Present. The Greenberg Firehouse Building is located at the heart of the Sykesville Historic District.
