Tour guide very well informed, old fire trucks most unique and even upstairs the uniforms shout bravery! Would recommend for all ages as the time is neither lengthy nor boring.

Worth a visit for the old fire apparatus. The company started in 1774 & this firehouse opened in 1855. Only open 1-4 PM on Saturday & Sunday.

Learning about the former firehouse rivalries in Old Town was fun, and the old fire fighting equipment is really cool. Good for kids and adults.
