HISTORY

EASTVILLE VOLUNTEER FIRE COMPANY, INC.
~FIGHTING 17~

The Eastville Volunteer Fire Company was originally incorporated in 1931 as the Eastville town council motioned to purchase a chemical fire engine known as 'Double 35'.  For the next several years the all-volunteer company purchased additional apparatus and constructed a new fire station in 1940.  Pictured below is the station and a new 1941 Ford pumper.   Bake sales, carnivals, and sale of potatoes provided a majority of the funds to construct the station and purchase new equipment.
