The Kewaunee Fire Station Museum which opened a year ago will be offering an audio tour in the near future. Similar to the audio tour provided on the Tug Ludington which sits in the harbor, the information will give visitors a chance to hear the historical significance of the fire apparatuses that are stored in the museum. Jim Kleiman, Kewaunee Fire Department Captain, says the museum stands out at night and has fire equipment dating back over 170 years ago.
The museum houses four pieces of historic equipment including an 1845 hand tub being the oldest fire apparatus on site. Kleiman says the large glass windows allow all the items to be viewed from the outside anytime. Plans are to open the museum every Sunday during Music in the Park which is held right across from the street, according to Kleiman.
