After a year of planning and construction, the new Kewaunee Fire Museum is completed. Lighting, plumbing and landscaping were finished this past month as the historic equipment inside can now be viewed from the outside. Kewaunee Fire Department Captain Jim Kleiman says the building has huge bay windows to allow easy viewing of the old apparatuses used by the fire department over a century ago.
According to Kleiman, the Kewaunee Fire Museum will house an 1845 Hand Tub pumper, an 1884 fire truck, a 1927 American La France engine, and a 1908 hose cart.
