- Silvermine’s 1947 Fire Engine
Back in the 1940’s, when Silvermine had it’s own zipcode, the Silvermine Volunteer Fire Company was founded by residents. Headquartered in a barn, the company was informally organized and covered parts of Norwalk, Wilton, and New Canaan. They were not officially recognized as part of the Connecticut State Fireman’s Association but were recognized in each of the three towns they served. The company became inactive in the 1960s and later disbanded.
The Silvermine Fire Engine, a 1947 Ford, is a proud reminder of the strength of the Silvermine volunteers. You’ll see it from time to time at Silvermine Community Membership drives and most certainly, every year, on Christmas Eve when Santa arrives at the Silvermine Tavern.
Meet the Chief
Enjoy the interview below with Bing Ventras, our Chief, and Bruce Cruikshank, the primary mechanic who lovingly restores and keeps the engine on the road.
