Our Story


The Firehouse has long been a treasured asset to the citizens of Bainbridge and its surrounding communities. This historic landmark of Bainbridge originally served to protect our citizens as the Fire and Police Station. After its renovation in the 1990’s, the Firehouse Arts Center has evolved into a versatile space that seeks to promote the arts and enrich our community.

The Kirbo Gallery

Open Tuesday-friday from 12 to 4pm
Saturdays from 10 am to 2 pm

The Kirbo Gallery is the heart of the Firehouse Arts Center.  This is where the main office is located and features a rotation of local artists and guests.  This Gallery also serves as a monthly meeting space for the Decatur County Artists’ Guild.



We are no longer accepting rental applications for the remainder of 2022.
Existing contracts will still be honored.
Thank you for your understanding.

The Callahan Room

The Callahan Room is our upstairs meeting room at the Firehouse Arts Center and is ideal for personal events or business luncheons. This hidden gem is accessible by stairs or elevator and is the perfect location for your mid-sized venue needs.
