Walnut Street Fire Hall Museum is Indiana’s oldest volunteer fire department started in 1873. The original building is now a hall and museum owned by Frank Taff. Here you can view a vast collection of vintage and modern firefighting tools and equipment along with learning more about the history of firefighting from 1850-1920s.
Stop in and see how innovative the firehouse world was and how far it has come. You will see a 1913 Model T Chassis, learn what old water mains were made of and why fire buckets have round bottoms! Though it is no longer a functional fire station, there is so much to learn and see at this very unique museum!
Private tours of the museum are available by appointment only and can be scheduled by reaching out to Frank Taff at 812-701-1901.
