PHOTOS: The Antique Toy and Firehouse Museum on Patterson Road is home to more than sixteen-thousand firefighting and construction toys as well as sixty firefighting buses and other equipment. What began as Jim Dobson's personal collection of firefighting memorabilia in the 1950s has blossomed into a treasure trove of over 16,500 firefighting and construction toys, complemented by a collection of 60 firefighting apparatus. Managed by a public foundation, the museum is expanding its facility to include a restored fire station on Washington Avenue. The museum serves as a beacon for those eager to explore and learn about the history of firefighting. Mike Snyder, Vice Chairman of the Antique Toy and Firehouse Museum, reflects on the museum’s next phase.
