PHOTOS: After three years of raising money, the Vintage Fire Museum’s capital campaign has been completed with over $600,000 contributed for the purchase and restoration of its building. The museum, at 706 Spring St., Jeffersonville, has been at its location since 2020. It had been at other sites, including just across the street from the current spot.
To celebrate the purchase and success of the capital campaign, the museum will host an event at 4 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 20. The event is free to the public and residents are encouraged to attend to celebrate the cause.
“The building is purchased and paid for, the renovations were taken care of and paid for,” said Curtis Peters, the Vintage Fire Museum’s board chair. “All of that has been done, leaving no debt with this at all.”
Fred Conway’s personal collection, which he started in the 1970s, lead to the creation of the museum.
