I was very impressed by this amazing light bulb...Yes it's just a light bulb, but its truly a sight to see and appreciate. We went there for Memorial day weekend and the fireman we spoke to was very nice and took his time answering our questions. If you have the time you should go see this incredible work of art... American Made!!

I knew a firefighter at this station and he had told me about it a few years ago. I was attending an event nearby and decided to stop by to see it. It’s a lightbulb. It’s an old lightbulb. It’s still on. This isn’t something I would go too far out of my way to visit, but if you’re nearby, it’s worth the few minutes to be able to say you’ve seen it.

Longest burning bulb anywhere. Located in a Fire Station. Check out the 'bulb cam' for an online experience. The bulb can be seen live by searching for Centennial Light Bulb.

I found this with my husband as we are geocachers and if we weren't geocachers, I'm not sure we would have discovered this historical gem. The Centennial Light Bulb is a cool piece of historical significance. It only takes about 5 minutes of your time to see.

If you're in the area, definitely worth a visit for nothing else than it's a unique and in the Guinness book of Records. When we went, the fire station was open but nobody around, so we peeked in, saw the bulb, took a photo and on our way in 5 mins. Would be nice to have a more elaborate and descriptive display around this historic bulb.
