03/06/12 183 W, 2 I - + 8 - 3 Raleigh Fire Museum Open This Saturday, March 10

We've added some new artifacts and new display cases to the Raleigh Fire Museum, which is open Saturday, March 10, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Notable are a pair of Cairns helmets, made of metal and dating to the 1920s. Or probably earlier. The museum is located in a classroom trailer at the Keeter Training Center at 105 Keeter Center Drive, Raleigh. It's operated by a non-profit 501(c)3 organization also named the Raleigh Fire Museum. The museum is open on the second Saturday of each month from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Parking and restrooms are available. Admission is free.

Please note that the city's collection of antique fire apparatus is housed at a separate location, at Fire Station 28 at 3500 Forestville Road in northeast Raleigh. And that is a secondary mandatory destination for anyone interested in history! Contact the Raleigh Fire Museum for information about arranging special tours or group events at the museum.
