A “wall-breaking” ceremony was recently held at the Siloam Springs Fire Station No. 2, located in downtown Siloam Springs, to signal the start of a project that will result in a complete renovation of the venerable fire station, originally constructed in 1968. When the project is completed, the firefighters who are headquartered at the station will enjoy expanded living and commons areas, larger and more useable office spaces, and other renovations that will allow the fire station to operate at an even greater level of efficiency and responsiveness. Exterior improvements will be consistent with other renovation and redevelopment that is occurring in downtown Siloam Springs. The project is scheduled to be completed later in 2019 and was designed by Matthias J. Pearson Architect of Siloam Springs in conjunction with the firm of Miller Boskus Lack of Fayetteville.
