Old Fire Hall and Tower

In the Old Fire Hall, visitors will find a general store, blacksmith’s shop, post office, and vintage radio display dedicated to R.A, Fessenden, the Knowlton-born inventor who made the world’s first radio broadcast. The Tower is the only one remaining in the area and features an interior crossbeam structure once used to dry out fire hoses.
