Just a chance to see a little history. This is an old fire station Museum that would be of interest any one who had been a fireman or has an interest in fire trucks. Neat displays and friendly people running tis Museum.

Like many small museums, this one is run by volunteers. If you are interested in the fire service and it's history, you'll enjoy this 1840's fire station complete with equipment and other artifacts. Unfortunately it's only open week days in the summer time.
