Epping Fire and Brick Museum

Cliff Cray & Joy True, president of the Epping Historical Society and other townspeople are working to preserve the memories of the old Fire Station through the Fire and Brick Museum authorized by voters in the March 2018 Town Meeting. The effort will bring the old station back to life, and also honor the brick-making industry that flourished in Epping in the 19th and 20th centuries.

The EPPING FIRE AND BRICK MUSEUM, still under construction in the towns 1935 fire station. We have nearly finished the apparatus floor and are housing two antique fire trucks. We still need to build shelving for our display and a sign made. We also need to waterproof the south side of the building. The exterior trim needs painting and the bottom floor needs a good cleaning before we can start the Brickyard displays. Epping was famous for its 5 Brickyards and the clay pits that the bricks were made from.

The building was used as Epping’s main fire station from 1935 to 2001, when the current Safety Complex was built. It was used for highway vehicle storage for several years, then sat empty and fell into disrepair.
