The Quinsigamond Firehouse is a historic fire station at 826 Blackstone River Road in Worcester, Massachusetts.

The 2-1/2 story brick Romanesque style building was designed by Patston & Lincoln and built in 1891-92 by O. C. Ward for $7,112. It has a single garage bay flanked by narrow windows on the first level, and five windows on the second level (the two outer ones matching the lower ones in size), and a Palladian window in a third-level gable projecting from the hipped roof.[2]

The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.[1]
