The Great Never-Ending Adventure
Beginning in 1987 with just an idea – the Mansfield Fire Museum was Born!
With the purchase of the former Five Cousins Department store in 1989, the Museum had a home. After about two years of basic building repairs, work on the museum began in earnest. Although the progress seemed slow, and after a few minor setbacks, the Museum was opened on October 12, 1994.
Even though the Museum was open, there were were some things unfinished. Some still remain that way as new ideas are being developed.
It is now apparent that the Mansfield Fire Museum will never be a finished product! It will continue to grown and change as new ides, equipment, and displays come!
