Historic Silver Spring Fire Department Building on Market

Continuing the march of development along the upper Georgia Avenue corridor in south Silver Spring, this week the Silver Spring Fire Department – which recently moved into its new modern space across the street - has put its old building at 8131 Georgia Avenue on the market for $2.5 million. The station, which the department bought in 1918 for $5,500, is on the Montgomery County’s Index of Historic Places. The two-level station is about 6,000 sf and the building sits on a 7,500 sf lot. The department is looking for a quick sale in order to pay for a new ladder truck. The department is also working with the Silver Spring Historical Society to ensure a proper buyer, adaptation, and preservation of this space, which is seen as perfect for retail, a restaurant, office, or entertainment use.
