For closed to a century this antiquated 400lb. converted locomotive wheel has been a symbol of courage, pride and valor to the men of the firefighting profession.

Coveted by many fire companies throughout the years, it has been secretly buried - concealed under floors or behind brick walls and guarded as a priceless treasure, always disappearing for unaccountable reasons to turn up again years later.

Though its intrinsic value is little, historically it exemplifies the tradition and devotion of the firemen of this city, always dear to their hearts as a living reminder of the men who first heard its commanding call to duty.
