A Home Away From Home: A Pictorial History of the Firemen’s Home
This exhibit details the founding of the Firemen’s Home and its evolution from a working farm for firemen down-on-their-luck to a skilled nursing facility.

This exhibit includes many pictures of the Firemen’s home and its residents through the years, as well as objects related to the establishment of the Firemen’s Home. Highlighted in the exhibit is the life of John Cruise O’Neil, a Firemen’s Home resident during the early 1900’s.
 
The audio/visual component of the exhibit allows the visitor access to Mr. O’Neil’s life before and during his residence at the Firemen’s Home, as well as his thoughts concerning his contemporaries and major events of the era. An interactive component challenging the visitor to match quotes on aging to famous individuals completes this exhibit.
