Come Experience the Evolution of New England Firefighting History! www.HaverhillFirefightingMuseum.org
Established in 2003, it is home to one of the largest collections of New England Firefighting History with artifacts dating as far back as colonial times.
Our museum honors those who have served and those who have died, and it teaches the evolution of firefighting and fire prevention.
One of Haverhill’s five Cultural Treasures -Buttonwoods Museum -Haverhill Firefighting Museum -John Greenleaf Whittier Birthplace -Tattersall Farm -Winnekenni Castle
From horse drawn water towers and handtubs to modern day
From New England towns
Every day and special occasion
Newly expanded with a goal to add much more
The Haverhill Firefighting Museum has always been a hit with adults but when families came, children were often done long before the adults. Who could blame them - in a museum you’re not supposed to touch! Museum Mascot Dottie the Dalmatian colors with friends!
The Children’s corner has dress up gear for kids so they can play on the fire truck dressed like real firemen!
A young boy dressed in fire gear pretends to put out a fire.
This hose and reel allows children to experience what it feels like to pull the hose and attach it to the fire truck.
Two boys attempt to hook the hose to the fire truck.
A female firefighter attaches the hose to the fire truck.
There is so much we want to do to enhance the experience children have when they visit the museum!
We want to add computer and communications technology to the fire truck, and add interactive displays that teach children history and fire safety.
We would like to add a play ambulance, and a fire pole with thick mats. We need protective floor padding in the entire Children’s Corner. We are creating a third grade classroom curriculum to bring into school classrooms. We are continually enhancing our field trip tours when classrooms and groups visit the museum.
We are creating a timeline display of firefighting uniforms and apparatus from colonial times to present day. We need a ramp for handicap access. We would like to extend our hours. We would like to start firefighting history tours in Haverhill.
We can also create a custom sponsorship just for you! We are a nonprofit 501 (c)3 - all gifts are tax deductible
