The Museum of Fire History

Discover a fascinating array of fire-fighting and fire house signaling equipment and memorabilia. Wonderfully displayed with alarms to sound, levers to pull and uniforms to try on.  The Museum of Fire History is the perfect location for preschool group to learn and discuss fire safety. Let our guides and retired Firefighters meet and teach your group how these tools and techniques save lives every day! 

The Museum of Fire History is made possible by the generous donation by Carlyle "Hap" Barnes in 2002 and is supported by the Barnes Foundation.
