Restaurant Row is one of the keys of this urban redevelopment and bring life back to the city. The Fire House Restaurant, is an excellent example of this renewal.
The historic Hope Station building was renovated and became home to The Fire House Restaurant. Hope Station is the oldest standing firehouse in the city of Harrisburg and is the second oldest in Pennsylvania.
Inspired by a devastating fire on Christmas Eve 1813, the Harrisburg Hope Fire Company was founded in 1814. This building, Hope Station #2, was built in 1871. The station continued to serve the community until 1980, when new firehouses were built and the company was relocated.
Most of the architecture is the original design; those areas in need of repair were restored to their original splendor. All of the exterior’s brick is a significant and rare example of its period it embodies the features of the Italianate Revival style, with simple lines, subtle design elements and an absence of embellishment. Along with the brickwork, all of the original sashing, window mutins and mullions and doors were retained in the restoration.
Today, Hope Station continues to serve its friends and neighbors of Central Pennsylvania in another way – as the home to The Fire House, purveyor of fine dining and drinks.
