Exhibit Opening “Engaging Fire: Waterford’s Fire Fighting Legacies”

The Waterford Museum is proud to announce that this year’s temporary exhibit will focus on the volunteer fire companies along with the men, women and unique industries of Waterford historically involved in suppressing fires in the community. Entitled "Engaging Fire: Waterford's Fire Fighting Legacies," the exhibit traces the continuous struggle between the destructive power of fire against the muscle, machines and ingenuity of the Waterford residents determined to fight them. The exhibit opening will be Friday, May 4th at 7pm. Admission for the opening will be complimentary. In addition to the fire exhibit, the Museum features a permanent exhibit on the history of Waterford and the surrounding area, a working scale model of a lock on the Old Champlain Canal, a gift shop and more. Regular hours start on May 5th and continue through October 28th. We will open, Saturdays 10 am - 4 pm, Sundays 2 pm - 4 pm and Wednesdays - Fridays 10 am - 2 pm or by appointment (researchers must make appointment). Admission to the Museum is only $5 for adults and members are free.
