Special Exhibit: “Fire: Celebrating the 160th Year of the Salem Fire Department”
Nov 7 – Dec 23 all-day

In 1857, Salem’s first fire company was established with a crew of dedicated volunteers. 160 years later, the professional force fields over 30,000 emergency calls per year. This exhibit allows visitors to follow the development of the department and its technology to see how fire has shaped our community over the past century.

Explore the exhibit through December 23rd, 2017 during regular museum hours (Monday through Saturday from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm).
