The Fire House Museum
Built as a Fire Station in 1918, this building was converted to a Museum by Association members and volunteer firemen after the Town built a new station nearby.
The first floor contains antique fire engines and apparatus and the second floor (with elevator access) is a display area for the Association's exhibits and presentation area for the slide shows.
