In the early days the Erie Fire Department was made up of volunteers. It first became an organization In 1816 and in 1886 the Active Fire Company was established. The company equipment consisted of hand pumpers, hose and buckets, and every homeowner was required to have a bucket for the protection of his property. Council records form 1813 show the first money expended for fire equipment was $40.00 for fire ladders and hooks. The first "Fire Engine" was purchased for $350.00 in 1815. The second pumper, a Button, hand pulled and hand pumped was purchased from Rufus J. Reed in 1830 and can be seen today at the original Fire House No. 4 located at 428 Chestnut Street, Erie. Fire House No. 4 was built in 1903 and in 1975 became the home of the Firefighters Historical Museum, Inc.
High end dining at its best! I absolutly enjoy my visits to Pufferbelly. Atmosphere is warm and staff is incredible. The quality of food is worth every dime. Sunday Brunch is a must! If you haven't visited Pufferbelly's brunch... do so soon and you wont be disappointed! Parking can be difficult, but the quality of your visit is worth the minor inconvenience.
Poor quality of food and unfriendly hostess. The salad was just awful. It tasted and looked days old. The hamburger and fries were just average. The wait time for the food was very long. I was extremely disappointed and would not recommend this place to anyone. I will not eat there again. The waiter was ok.
