Fireman's Grove is located here in the area just above the confluence of the Rum River. It was named for the firemen who pastured their horses at The Point. Fireman's Grove became a favorite gathering place for townspeople and visitors who enjoyed picnics and Fourth of July celebrations here under the white pines.

These all day events included the parade and brass band, patriotic speeches... the cool shade of the grove, on nature's green carpet, or at crude tables improvised for the occasion, discussed the bountiful supplies of good things provided. The band discoursed more excellent music, and the gathering quietly dispersed.
