Clang, clang! Goes the antique fire bell in Liberty Hall Museum’s Firehouse. It is just one of many examples of fire memorabilia on display, much of which is from the private collection of Stewart B. Kean.
The Firehouse opened in 2005 with the mission to promote fire safety and education for children, senior citizens and all members of communities throughout New Jersey and the surrounding area.
Children and adults love to ogle the restored 1928 American LaFrance Pumper and 1927 Seagrave Pumper fire engines. Visitors are fascinated by the exhibits of fire helmets, uniforms, bells, tools, documents and photographs.
The Firehouse is a favorite stop for children groups who enjoy participating in an
old-fashioned bucket brigade, dress up like firemen and play on a restored fire truck, so they can feel like real firefighters.
