Old Firehouse No 1 is full of memorabilia and history. Great place to take kids or plan a meeting as they rent the second floor for meeting space.

I am a firefighter and was sooooo looking forward to this place. The people who keep this place going are very friendly and knowledgable. The museum itself 👎🏻 there is many years of tools and equipment they could have but don't even come close.
