The Delaware Valley Fire Museum will celebrate a grand opening on May 3 and May 4, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Located at the New Hope Eagle Fire Station on 46 North Sugan Road in New Hope (PA) the DVFM features vintage working tools, toys, work and dress uniforms and 19th and 20th century man-drawn carriage and carts. The current exhibition spans the 18th-21st centuries. Admission is free.
Important artifacts relating to the cold war are displayed near Jim McGuiness’ magnificent and poignant “Stairway to Dedication” 911 sculpture. Outside, a beautiful reflection garden holds a section of metal beam from–and pointing to–the World Trade Center tragedy.
Sponsored by the Eagle Fire Company and private donors, the DVFM will remain open week-ends until the end of October, with hours by appointment until next spring. Small groups are welcome. For additional information visit, delvalfiremuseum.org, or call Laurie Stockton, Curator at 215-862-2692.
