The Firehouse Gallery

The Milford Arts Council and the City of Milford came to an agreement in 2000 to develop the former Walnut Beach Fire Company #3 building into a community facility to promote the arts in the Walnut Beach neighborhood. The Fire Department had consolidated several Devon stations into a new, centralized facility on Naugatuck Avenue and vacated this historic station that had served the neighborhood since 1920. The new facility opened in 2002 and includes approximately 1,000 square feet of gallery space, a lower level for classes and activities, and a second floor for offices and a residential dwelling unit that is for our Artist in Residence program. The Firehouse Gallery was renovated inside and out, complete with a stunning mural by artist, John Paul O’Grodnick.
