The Ritchie Volunteer Fire Department was officially incorporated in the state of Maryland on October 5, 1964. They were endorsed by the Prince George’s County Firemen’s Association, strongly supported by the community, and backed by local businessman. On November 25, 1964 Mr. Alton P. Nicholson donated a parcel of ground to the Ritchie Volunteer Fire Department in the area known as the Ritchie Triangle. Not long after, on December 12, 1964 Mr. and Mrs. Aubrey Ritchie donated another parcel of ground to the firehouse.
