Like more formal museums, Al Ginoble’s museum devoted to firefighting is a step back in South Williamsport’s history. Although the majority of the museum is focused on Fire Company Citizens No. 2, Al’s passion for local memorabilia is evident throughout his converted garage. The walls are covered with vintage photos. Some of Hurr’s Dairy horse drawn delivery wagons and trucks and the old Dixie Barbecue, just to name a few. Glass showcases display fire gear and mementos of many aspects of local history.
Al makes certain that visitors register their date in his guest book; a simple yet important reflection of the museum’s historical value. Not Al’s garage; it is Al’s showcase of his commitment to South Side life.
