Adamstown maintains a small museum inside the station housing the company’s first rig, a used “Little Giant” hand pumper, a 1919 Ford Model “T” which had its’ pump & engine transferred from a horse drawn engine as well as assorted firematic memorabilia.

Constructed in 1997, this four bay station replaced a former service station that was remodeled by the members in 1981 to act as the fire station (it is currently used as the borough library & offices).
