Old Contoocook Fire House

(Fire Station/Apartment Home)

by Mrs. Walter Miner

 

In 1831 the Contoocook Village Engine Company was incorporated.

 

In 1889 a water line was laid from Bear Pond to the Village, and thus the town was afforded hydrant protection. Alarms were sounded by bell until the installation of electric sirens in 1925.

 

The first mechanized engine was a Whippet pumper ladder truck acquired in 1932. In 1947 Contoocook and Hopkinton fire precincts were joined to form the Hopkinton Fire Department.
