There's remarkable heritage in Harrisburg.
I have to admit, I wasn't sure what to expect when I was approaching the museum. Would it be filled with dusty old uniforms or stacks of old paper logs, the edges curled and yellow? Would it be filled not with artifacts but instead cliches - the handsome, hunky firefighters and their infallible equipment? I wasn't entirely convinced that this would be a good fit for me.
What does it take to keep a small museum thriving? In the case of the Pennsylvania National Fire Museum, you need a little ingenuity, a whole lot of community connections, and an troop of dedicated volunteers, willing to work every day, every week, every month for decades at a time.
