This Museum displays historic fire fighting equipment from the gold rush days when water was vital. As towns developed, nearly overnight along streams rich with gold, fire was their worst enemy. Getting water to a fire on the roads that were little more than muddy horse trails required creative solutions. Unfortunately several towns in the mother lode area burned to the ground- many more than once.

There is a Senior Lounge area and the facility is can be used as place to stay cool in triple digit heatwaves in summer and early fall.
