1860 Hunneman Hand Pumper

This early pumper for the Salem Fire Department was built by an apprentice of Paul Revere. It required the use of human power to pull it to the fire scene, and in turn was also pumped by hand upon its arrival! It is currently housed and on display at Salem's Fire Station #5.
