Five Points Fire Station Museum in Lafayette - West Lafayette, Indiana

FIVE POINTS FIRE STATION MUSEUM [map]
1511 Main Street, Lafayette, IN 47901
765-429-1046


DESCRIPTION

This 93-year-old building is new again as a fire station museum. The building has been restored to its 1937 heyday and will house a 1937 Arhnens-Fox fire truck that made runs from the station for more than 36 years. Inside you’ll be able to see what it was like to be a firefighter in the 1930s at the station as well as try on firefighter coats and helmets. There are display rooms dedicated to fire toys, fire tools and extingishers and nozzles. A remaining room is restored as a bedroom as it looked in the 1930s.
For the history buffs, there is a plethora of photos, documents, newspaper clippings, run ledgers and memorabilia on display that tell the history of the fire department in Lafayette. Call for hours.
