There is a hoarded collection of local and regional fire fighting history - the people, the equipment and the culture. Staffed by retired fire fighters with lots to share about everything. Go upstairs and visit the old meeting hall with its collection of photos, documents, furniture and all sorts of stuff from the 1800s - 1900s.

We went to the museum with my four year old grandson and my eighty-plus old parents. There was enjoyment and all. See a great collection of firetrucks and memorabilia and lots of hands on activities for young children. Inexpensive and interesting.
My husband and I happened upon this Museum purely by accident one day and decided to go in and look around. It was very interesting and the folks inside were very knowledgable about the local history and were able to answer everyone's questions. It's a great place to visit and take the kids
