Vintage Fire Museum


We traveled across the river to the Vintage Fire Museum in Jeffersonville, Indiana.  Traffic was difficult, so maybe we'll wait until the bridges are finished before we venture there again.  Several of our members parked at the Louisville waterfront and walked across the bridge!  The museum featured an extensive collection of rare fire engines and memorabilia, including a 1756 fire engine, the first chemical engine in the United States and a gorgeous pre-Civil War pumper that was hand-powered by 20 men.


The museum was open exclusively to the Bourbon Brotherhood.  Food was provided and $5 gave you access to a table full of bourbon - self serve style.


Scott Reid provided everyone with a sampling of delicious Rivulet pecan liqueur and one bottle was given away as a door prize!  We had lots of other great door prizes as well including a bottle of Maker's Mark bourbon.
