Fire Station B: Hook & Ladder 2* and Hose Company 2, Circa 1905
*The station formerly housed the original and then newer “Hook & Ladder #1” trucks which were later juggled among several locations. The building, located across Washington St. from the public library, still exists, though no longer a firehouse. It is decorated here for the town’s bicentennial celebration.

To the right, the wagon of Oliver B. Delano's Sons, Carpenter is parked in front of their business. The father established himself here in 1866 and built his house in the rear, just visible, several years later. He died in 1893 and his sons took over the business.
