History of the Firehouse Restaurant
One of the gems of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, the Hope Station has a unique and fascinating story behind it. It all began over 200 years ago. What began as a devastating fire on Christmas Eve in 1813 which occurred in downtown Harrisburg, led to the formation of the Harrisburg Hope Fire Company. Amazingly, this fire company laid the groundwork to build a brand new station that went on to become one of Harrisburg’s oldest standing buildings.
It’s also registered as the second oldest buildings in the state of Pennsylvania. Construction for Hope Station #2 was completed in 1871 and served as working fire station until 1980. It was decommissioned after the Harrisburg Hope Fire Company had built new facilities that were modern and had the available space for their fire crew. It didn’t take too long before the Firehouse Restaurant at Hope Station #2 was open for business.
Featuring all the aspects of the original station, one of the few highlights of Restaurant Row in downtown Harrisburg quickly engulfed in fame. It was the history behind this historic monument to heroism and bravery that drew quick attention to top food critics all over the state. They had hosted everything from wedding receptions to private parties that remain a continuous memory up until this day.
Because of the ornate design of this building and the timeless quality of early American firefighter sensibilities, the interior wasn’t hard to dress-up. You might say that this pattern may have been one of the earliest recounts of what a themed restaurant strived to achieve without ever thinking it was already a hit! At a time when pretentious restaurants were being called out on their bearings, the Fire House Restaurant was a breath of fresh air.
How this Partnership will Flourish
As any seasoned fireman will attest, the strength and intensity of fire determine the severity of an alarm call. This is a shared opinion among BBQ Pitmasters who also know that heat and open flame can make or break cooked meats. One aspect that the firehouse restaurant was famous for was their commitment to great grilled and smoked meats that gave rise to savory dishes they were known to bring in repeated and dedicated patrons.
These parallels give more than enough reason to announce that we will continue the tradition of great BBQ grill tips and techniques. Along with creative recipes that help recreate the flavor of the Firehouse Restaurant menu they were best known for. Just as you’ll find in any article that you’ll find on Home Report News, we want to inform and educate everyone about the proper safety and maintenance of BBQ equipment – but we won’t stop their. Fire safety must also be close to heart in indoor settings when operating wood-burning or pellet stoves, as well as outdoor settings while sitting around fire pits or patio heaters as you enjoy wonderful meals with family and friends.
When you think about the fact that fire safety and contributions towards society were the primary goals of the Harrisburg Hope Fire Company, our hope is to reinvigorate that spirit – and that is one of the many reasons that we recommend alternatives to traditional flame appliances to our readers, such as electric fireplaces and electric smokers. If there is one thing that helps establish the brave and heroic efforts of the fire-fighting people of America, the newly re-launched Firehouse Restaurant website puts out the call for everyone to be a hero. We stand by this concept and believe that past fans of the Fire House Restaurant will agree.
We would like to share this exclusive release with everyone who has experienced the Firehouse Restaurant firsthand. We want to know your experiences and how we can make our newest effort become an honorable living memory of what they brought into your life. All of us at Home Reporter News is dedicated to providing the best informative articles that make a difference. We also care that it makes sense to uphold the best intent of everytown heroes.
