To the surprise of many, this building has never been home to a real fire station … it was merely a theme that the original Pumphouse founders felt would be successful in combination with the structure itself. Though it has never been a firehouse, the building has a lot of history behind it. The Pumphouse Brewery is housed in the original “William Lugg Building”. William Lugg was a prominent businessman in Longmont during the early 1900’s. The building was erected on the corner of 6th & Main Street over what was previously a wood & coal storage and sales yard. The Lugg Building was initially used as a garage & repair shop, and was known as the Ford Garage. In subsequent years, the building changed hands a couple of times, and was renamed Power Motor Company & Cleland Motor Company, in turn. In the late 1920’s, Mrs. Ollie R. Boggs leased the building & opened a “high class, up-to-date roller skating rink” named Fairyland. This use lasted only a short while, as Standard Oil of Indiana took over the building in 1930 & remodeled it for a service station. It was a large station in its day & was referred to as “Standard Super Service Station” (S.S.S.S.). Mr. Lugg operated the business himself.
