Great Grandpa August had a son named Raymond, who grew up in that brick home to become a Loudonville firefighter. Grandpa Ray then had a son named Ronald, who grew up in that same house and joined the department. Next, Ronald had a son named Joe, who—you guessed it—grew up in the home and became a Loudonville firefighter.
Joe remembers his father and grandfather rushing from the house to respond to fires. He would run outside and wave as they passed the home in the firetruck, blowing their horn. Still to this day, when Joe gets called for a squad call or fire, he blows the horn when he passes our home.
The home and business were sold back in 2006, but recently they went back on the market. Joe and his wife, Lara, felt it was important to purchase this property to get it back in the family.
As both the home of three generations of Kiefer firefighters and a unique lodging option in Loudonville, the Firehouse Inn is tastefully designed and decorated to showcase the work, dedication, and service of a firefighter's life. Please call if you have any questions.
