Fall River Fire Museum, Inc.
The newly-born Fall River Fire Museum, in partnership with the Preservation Society of Fall River, Inc., is a project spearheaded by a group of volunteers. The museum’s mission is to collect, preserve, and exhibit artifacts that properly document the history of the Fall River Fire Department. We are also dedicated to educating the public in fire safety and prevention and to serve as a memorial to those who have given their lives to the fire service.
The fire museum’s new home is located at Anawan No. 6, 1181 North Main Street in Fall River. This building housed a fire and police sub-station when it was built in 1873. Designed by Harwell and Swazey, this Italianate style structure is listed on the National Historic Register.
The museum is currently in the fundraising stages of the project. We are also fulfilling all the necessary paperwork to begin restoration work on the building anticipating a soft opening next year. Thanks to your support, we are able to continue moving forward with the project.
