In 2016 Whitemarsh Township moved to stop providing funding to the Lincoln Fire Company which effectively closed it. Since then the property (252 Roberts Avenue) has been purchased by a developer Conshohocken Construction.
The developer first proposed building townhouses, but that was rejected. A plan to build two single-family homes was approved in February of 2019. The demolition of the property started this week.
Within the next seven days, we are going to have a couple of articles on the history of the fire company.
