Stay tuned for pictures of the new lettering on the antique Maxim. I was going to get some the other night after our meeting, but my battery in my phone was dying.

Our Story

The Seekonk Fire Museum is located in what used to be Seekonk Fire Station 3. The building is owned by the Central Volunteer Fire association (CVFA) whose members used to work as on-call firefighters out of that station. They sponsor and operate the museum which is free to the public. The museum is open from 10am - noon on the first Saturday of every month once the warmer weather starts.

This page is a work in progress. We will update with more information soon. Thank you for your interest and please let your friends know about us.
