History
Established in 1925.

At the fifty-first State Firemen's Convention held in Hudson, New York in 1923, a resolution was signed by the Presidents and Secretaries of both the Firemen's Association of the State of New York (FASNY) and the Exempt Firemen's Association of the City of New York. This resolution stated that if FASNY would authorize the erection of a suitable building for a museum, four antique fire engines would be donated to the fledgling museum by the Exempt Firemen's Association of the City of New York. These antiquities included the oldest documented fire engine in New York State, a Newsham Engine, circa 1725. Also included in this donation was a gooseneck-style engine, a piano-style engine and a double-decker-style engine. These rare and wonderful old pieces of apparatus would serve as the foundation of the new collection of this museum, which would later become known as the FASNY Museum of Firefighting.
