The Way We Were: Larchmont Fire House


Larchmont’s first Fire House and Village Hall,  at the northwest corner of Circle and Maple Avenues were erected by the Larchmont Manor Company prior to the incorporation of the Village.

Village Hall (top picture) was originally intended to be a schoolhouse. In 1926, two years after the new Village Hall and Firehouse on Larchmont Avenue were completed, these buildings were demolished and the land sold at auction.

46 Circle Avenue (bottom picture) was built soon afterwards.
