Whether you are a firefighter or a history buff, this is a great place to stop by. It is completely volunteer based, which makes it even more impressive. Staff is so friendly!!

Good museum of the history. Very friendly staff. Takes about an hour, well worth it if you have any interest in firefighting history.

This is a great event. We have attended two years in a row now. Lots of great demonstrations and seminars. Tons of vendors with really good prices on everyday horse items and lots of vendors sell unqiue items. The Theatre Eques show is absolutely wonderful...don't miss it!

This was one of the best fire museums I have ever toured. The retired volunteers (it seemed mostly firemen/women) who run the museum were great! The facility is an original firestation that was restored and houses many antique fire trucks and even tells of how they used to be horse drawn. Just a great place to visit with TONS of history and although I didn't have any kids with me, I'm sure they would get a big kick out of going there!
