For decades, equipment used by firefighters from the early 1800s lay rusting away in musty rooms until it was decided in 1981 that these brave men should have more than dusty memories. So this fire historical museum was born. Included is an 1831 hand pumper, an 1893 parade carriage, and an early 20th-century street-corner fire alarm. One display honors a group of firefighters who lost their lives when a propane tank exploded. The museum is run by volunteers with no admission fee.
