Established, 1897

Our History

Once the home of Engine Company 12, the firehouse was built in 1895 and served the Bloomingdale community for nearly a century. After a meticulous restoration to preserve the original structure and design, we’re happy to make Old Engine 12 a community destination for good times, food, drinks and entertainment.
