Engine House No. 10 is a historic firehouse located at 1341 Maryland Ave., NE., Washington, D.C., in the Stanton Park neighborhood, just north of Capitol Hill.

History[edit]

It was built in 1894-95. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2008.

The firehouse is one of eight designed by Leon Dessez in Washington.[2]

Engine Company 10 was formed on July 2, 1895 at this firehouse and was equipped with an 1884 Clapp & Jones 450 GPM steam fire engine and an 1895 McDermott Bros. hose reel carriage. In 1940 it moved to a firehouse on Florida Avenue.[3]
