The former Ayer firehouse at 14 Washington St was home to the department for seventy-two years. It was built by George Ernest Robinson, famous for fire station architecture, in 1934 as a "Colonial Revival". The structure was expanded with additions made in 1945, 1970 & 1996 to accommodate the needs of the department. This building, which has been vacant since 2006, is currently being eyed for conversion in to six units of affordable housing.
