Brockton Fire Museum [MA]
"Opened in May of 1992, the Brockton Fire Museum was constructed for the purpose of preserving the proud history of fire fighting in the Brockton area. The artfully designed building, with wide pumpkin pine floors and subdued lighting, effectively conveys the atmosphere of a classic Brockton fire station during Victorian times." Visitors to the museum can enjoy thousands of firefighting artifacts, as well as a restored 1850s Hand-Tub Pumper and a memorial to the 13 firemen who were killed in the Strand Theater disaster.
The site offers visitor information, a virtual tour, and historical information regarding the museum.
