From the listing:

Engine House No. 7 was put into service in January 1885 one month prior to the dedication of the Washington Monument. 931 R Street served as a firehouse for Engine Company No. 7 as well as Engine Company No. 4 until the early 1970’s, when the District of Columbia Fire Department underwent reorganization. At this time, the property was sold to the Wolfe family who used the historic structure to manufacture harpsichords. Since 1992, Engine House No. 7 has functioned as the home gallery, studio and residence for renowned sculpture-artist Craig Kraft.
