exciting heritage of firefighting in New York State which is documented
back as early as 1648 when Peter Stuyvesant appointed four fire wardens
to inspect the wooden chimneys of the houses of New Amsterdam. From that
point forward, volunteers have banded together to offer mutual aid in an
effort to thwart any disaster. Our museum depicts the history of
firefighting in a moving tribute to those brave men and women who have
served their communities. Observe floor-to-ceiling displays of historic
paintings, dramatic photos, badges, helmets, torches and antique toys.
Our staff and retired volunteer firefighter tour guides will be pleased
