07/04/07 127 W, 1 I - + 18 - 12 Fire Museums


Let's tour. Here's the Minneapolis Fire Museum that Mike visited last week, as well as the new North Charleston and ALF Fire Museum. FireNews Editor Jeff Harkey photographed Philly's Fireman's Hall recently. Also in Pennsylvania is the Harrisburg Fire Museum, that Mike has visited. And here are older and lamer pics of the Baltimore Fire Museum as well as some newer shots from Baltimore. Next question, how can we start something like this here? We'd need a building. And stuff to fill the building. And people to staff the building. And money to pay for whatever wasn't donated. And, over it all, some sort of organization. Maybe a buff's club. Maybe a historical society. Maybe a municipal sponsor. Don't know. Need to think on that.





Here’s Fayetteville’s history room: http://www.flickr.com/photos/legeros/set..

Ther is also an excellent fire museum at the NY State Firemen’s Home, located in Hudson, NY. I have some pictures that I can upload to Mike if interested. There are probably 50 pieces of fire apparatus on display, including the first hand pumper ever used in the US, as well as the ‘original’ Mattydale engine that had teh ‘original Mattdale’ crosslays.
