I'm Getting A Fire Museum 5 Minutes From My House!

I love my new hometown. Today, I read my local papers website, and find out that we're geting a new fire apparatus museum 5 minutes down the road from my house! I am psyched!

Members of the old volunteer fire department and members of the Old Settlers Association turn the dirt at a groundbreaking ceremony for a new firehouse museum May 13.

One of Round Rock’s historic icons will finally have a home. A 1938 Ford fire engine that was used by the Round Rock Volunteer Fire Department until the 1970s will be housed in a new vintage-inspired firehouse at the Old Settlers Association grounds at 3300 E. Palm Valley Blvd. in Round Rock. The building will also house an old pump truck used by the fire department, as well as other firehouse memorabilia.
