Leave a Legacy and Support The Restoration of the Central Fire Station

Interactive exhibits featuring the Fire of ’22 have been built and historic fire equipment has been interpreted.  We have a Fire Station full of surprises in 1928 style ready to be installed in the old Central Fire Station Building!  Coming in 2016 is a Children’s Fire Museum equipped with hands-on exhibits, fire safety programs, and birthday party opportunities will be waiting for the youngest New Bernians to take part in the City’s legacy of firefighting.  All of this and more will be housed in the Central Fire Station Building, circa 1928 located in the 200th block of Broad Street in Downtown New Bern!

The New Bern Firemen’s Museum is making history with the restoration of the Central Fire Station to its 1928 appearance and we need your help!  You have a special opportunity to become part of this lasting legacy when you purchase an engraved 4″ x 8″ Brick  at $100, or 8″ x 8″ Paver at $250.  These special bricks and pavers will be placed in the “Honor Walk” of the newly landscaped courtyard of the Museum that will house a historic bell from City Hall. It will be an opportunity to show your support of New Bern’s fire history and a place you and your loved ones can visit for years to come!
