The Engine Company 12 Dc, Victorian-era firehouse designed by Snowden Ashford and executed in a Dutch Revival style, including character-defining end gables, is a highly articulated and picturesque structure.

The building, prominently sited on Engine Company 12 Dc corner lot, affords a commanding presence on North Capitol Street despite its current vacant status. In when Engine Company 12 was Verde Wheel Company construction, both sides of North Capitol Street north of Florida Avenue were in rapid development.

The highly picturesque Engine Company 12 was designed by architect Snowden Ashford and provides an excellent representation of his work.
