We enjoyed the tour of the old firehouse with all of the fire engines from the late 1800's and early 1900's. The tour guide was a volunteer. He was very nice and knowledgeable.

If you are a fireman or not, it's a fun place to visit. Lots of history. It's also a great place for children to visit as they are welcome to climb aboard the trucks for a picture.

Definitely take your time checking out the historic engines and firefighting apparatus, but for me the real treat was the historic fire hall itself, where horses and men once mixed with affection and back-breaking labor. Upstairs you'll find the area where the men lived, history...More
