1908 Howe

This is the only photo we have in our archives of our
first piece of equipment, a 1908 Howe Hand Drawn Pumper

Our first piece of equipment purchased by our founders was delivered on May 13th 1908 for $796. This hand drawn water and chemical piece was in service untill 1922 when our first "motorized" piece of equipment was purchased. Once replaced, it was donated to the newly formed Fegleysville Fire Company, now known as New Hanover Fire Company, and later destroyed in a fire.
