MILLWOOD, N.Y. -- The former Millwood firehouse, which firefighters recently vacated after nine decades of usage , has finally been sold to a private buyer.
The firehouse, which is located at 60 Millwood Road, was acquired for $702,500, county land records show. The deed-transfer record, which shows that the sale is official, was recorded on Tuesday, Nov. 10.
The buyer is listed as an entity called 60 Millwood Partners LLC, a company that is linked to Princeton Realty Group due to a shared office address in Mount Kisco.
It is not clear what the buyer intends to do with the property.
A state corporations search shows that the company's contact person is Adam Garber, who is also a representative for Princeton Realty Group.
Garber could not be reached for comment.
Millwood firefighters held a decommissioning service for the old firehouse late last month, which included procession to a new firehouse located up the street. Since the old property has sold, firehouse lettering has been stripped from the building.
The Millwood Fire District, which governs Millwood's fire department, had a larger firehouse constructed in order to have more room for firetrucks , which historically have been getting larger. The structural shape of the old firehouse was also cited as a reason for building a replacement.
The fire department, which is officially called Millwood Fire Company No. 1, owned the firehouse until it sold the property to the fire district in 1999, according to county records. Hala Makowska, who chairs the district's board of fire commissioners, said that the sale was for $1 and with the promise of adding a new firehouse.
