Thank you for your patience in waiting for our gift shop
to be put online. We have had several delays but
hope to have the gift shop ready soon.
Firefighters Museum is located in the 1907 Old No. 5 Hook and Ladder
Company Station. It boasts a fantastic collection of old firetrucks
including 'Old Tige,' a 1884 horse-drawn steam pumper named after
then mayor W.L. Cabell
and a 1936 ladder truck. Children can indulge their
fascination with firefighters by climbing on a hook and ladder truck
as well as viewing over 100 years of firefighting history thru a
collection of extinguishers, helmets, suits, uniforms, etc.

to show to individuals and groups and to give a lesson in fire saftey to the many groups of children who regularly visit.
