Apparently we’ve been passing some history on many of our walks to the metro. There is a plaque that says this firehouse used to house engine company 24 and was built in 1911. Back then the engines were pulled by horses but this station was the first one in DC to be fully motorized. Georgia Ave. represent.  Anyway, this firehouse moved in 1994.  I’m not really sure what it houses today.  See the plaque after the jump.
