Go back in time by visiting this museum. The volunteer firefighters for Jamestown are very welcoming and the museum was fun for my daughter to explore. After we looked here, the firefighters showed us the modern working fire engines too. Great place to explore.

A surprisingly wonderful collection of old firefighting equipment in a historically accurate firehouse. Volunteers demonstrated how the old alarm pull boxes worked during our visit

We were a bit disappointed that the museum was not open. It surely would be nice to visit. We took the opportunity to take a few photos though.

This museum, was truly, made from the love and devotion of volunteer firefighters. So, manyvwonderful artifacts and pictures, to be seen. Not to mention the restored antique fire trucks. Anyone, who happens to be hanging around the station, takes delight in showing the museum.

This museum is awesome, and the volunteer fire fighters who created it and manage it are a treasure themselves. If you have any interest is firefighting, history or trucks this shouldn't be missed. Kids of all ages will be delighted!

We were peeking in the windows when one of the volunteers showed up and asked if we would like to go inside.

There is... More
