Hanover Fire Museum [PA]

The Hanover Fire Museum presents memorabilia relevant to the history of two local stations—the Hanover Fire Company #1 and Eagle Fire Company #2, as well as to the wider history of firefighting. Artifacts of note include an 1882 Silsby Steamer 550 GRM (a form of pump), a circa 1830 two cylinder piston hand pumper previously used in Baltimore, a circa 1770 Nushem grinder hand engine, and a working 1911 Gamewell Alarm Board.

The museum offers exhibits.
