02/08/12 159 W, 2 I - + 7 - 5 Raleigh Fire Museum Open This Saturday, Feb. 11

Looking for a fun activity on Saturday? Visit the Raleigh Fire Museum, which is open on Saturday, February 11, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. The museum is located at 105 Keeter Center Drive, in a classroom trailer at the Keeter Training Center. It's open on the second Saturday of each month.

The centerpiece is the 1870 fire alarm bell that hung in a clock tower on Fayetteville Street and alerted the volunteer fire companies. Other displays include a photo history of city fire apparatus, from horse-drawn hose wagons to the modern pumping engines.

Pay a visit! Meet a historian! Yours Truly will be staffing same. There's no charge for admission. And there's parking and restrooms available. Please note that the city's collection of antique fire apparatus is housed elsewhere, at Fire Station 28 at 3500 Forestville Road in northeast Raleigh. That's also a great place to visit!
