Engine House No. 9 (Tacoma, Washington)
Engine House No. 9
|Location||611 N. Pine St., Tacoma, Washington|
|NRHP reference #||75001866|
|Added to NRHP||July 30, 1975|
It hosted horse-drawn fire equipment from 1908 until 1919 when the first motorized equipment was bought. When eventually a replacement station was being completed, the 1965 Puget Sound earthquake shook the building and it was abruptly abandoned. It was reopened in 1973 as a restaurant and bar and was "the city's first historic building to be restored and put to a commercial use by private enterprise."
The building remains a neighborhood restaurant and also houses an award-winning microbrewery of the same name.
