Gallery I

Gallery 1 displays hand and horse drawn fire engines, ladder wagons, hose wagons, and chemical wagons. The exhibits change, but there are usually 35 to 40 pieces on display. All are fully restored to their original appearance. They range from an English fire engine built in 1725 to a stunning steam fir engine built for the town of Reno, Nevada in 1904. In between is a striking Philadelphia style fire engine from Pawtucket, Rhode Island, a fairy tale like 1870 parade carriage from Derby, Connecticut, and a diminutive 1865 Rumsey pumper that helped fight the Chicago Fire of 1871.

Gallery I also displays an extensive collection of insurance company fire marks from England, France, Germany, Austria, Belgium, Italy and the United States. A number of rare and beautiful lithographs are on exhibit, including all of the “Life of a Fireman” lithographs of Currier and Ives. Attached to Gallery 1 is a theater which shows a continuous introductory video as well as displays of helmets, speaking trumpets, and other memorabilia.
