Former Firehouse - West Sacramento CARebuilt in 2017
The Works Progress Administration (WPA) built a firehouse in the then unincorporated area of Broderick (now West Sacramento) for the Washington Fire District. The building is now privately owned.
According to the Sacramento Bee on May 13, 2016, the station had “been long vacant” when it was acquired by Derar Zawaydeh and Philippe Masoud, owners of chain of brewpubs called “Burgers and Brews.” The downstairs was converted into a restaurant and the upstairs became the bar and club. Thankfully, the Art Deco architecture of the building was preserved.
