|The Firehouse by April M Rimpo|
When I decided to paint scenes from Ellicott City there was a wealth of material begging for attention. The hard part was deciding what to paint first.
You can tell the people of Ellicott City love their town. The old town center is beautifully maintained and, as you can see in The Firehouse, American flags fly out front of several shops.
Now a museum, the firehouse was first built in 1889 and was the first firehouse in Howard County. According to the Howard County website is was used after 1923 as a meeting hall, county office space, and a library. It is located at the intersection of Main Street and Church Road.
