  • I love this place it's great to bring your children to teach them about the history of our fire departments and how they all got started, from horse ran trucks to engines and more just great.

  • Only open certain hours and days so make sure you check online in advance. Kind of small but they have what is truly important inside and that's knowledge!! Very polite staff and will answer any question you have with a smile. It has been there since I was a little girl. 5 stars!!
