Lima Fire Fighters Memorial Museum


category : Museums
The Lima Fire Fighters Memorial Museum is dedicated to those who presently serve, as well as those who have served since 1865, protecting the citizens of Lima. It is to these more than 600 fire fighters that we pay tribute. Dedicated on Memorial Day 1999, the Lima Fire Fighters Museum houses memorabilia from Lima's fire fighting history. From a 19th century horse-drawn steam pumper to the hero-inscribed honor walk, the museum perpetuates this great history of selfless duty. You can learn about the heroic individuals who have served the Lima community for the last 150 years. View photos, newspaper accounts, even original equipment used to fight some of Lima's most devastating fires. Open for outdoor viewing from sun-up 'til sun-down. For tour arrangements, call 419-221-5164.
