We here at the Columbus Indiana Architectural Archives are putting together a display of the history of fire houses here in Columbus. It will be part of the "159 Years of Columbus History" celebration which will be held here at the library on Friday, September 13th and Saturday, September 14th. Our display will be in the gallery space here at the library and we hope to leave it up through the end of the year. I have snagged some information from this site to include in our display. There are so many good photos and so much interesting information that will help make our display more complete. Hope many of you will be able to stop by sometime during the display and take a look!
