Firefighters Museum

Founded in 1976 for the purpose of preserving the history of the Toledo Fire Division and educating citizens about fire prevention and safety, the Toledo Firefighters Museum is just 5 minutes from downtown Toledo. Created in memory of fallen firefighters, the two-story museum is located in a working fire station, "Old Number 18 Fire House", circa 1920, which was replaced by a new station in 1975.
