The Bare Cove Fire Museum has launched a unique and lasting way for donors to contribute to the preservation and presentation of firefighting history as it occurred in the Town of Hingham, Massachusetts. Since 1974, this nonprofit education institution has accumulated an extraordinary collection of artifact, equipment and documents which tells the story of the men and machines who worked heroically to save lives and property.
Hingham’s Dodge/Maxim Forest Wagon is currently under partial restoration at the Museum. Nicknamed the “Bunny Wagon” is in some dispute but suspected it was small and could “hop” over rough ground to fight the numerous brush, woods, and grass field fires.
This is where you can help! We are asking for a donation to help fully restore Hingham’s “Bunny Wagon” while also contributing to the restoration and preservation of our current artifacts, equipment and documents.
As a showing of our appreciation we will furnish you with a brick and it will be prominently displayed around our flag pole at the main entrance of the museum and your donation will be known to all who visit. You may wish to donate a brick in memory of a family member, businesses recognition, special sentiment or dedication.
Thank you for y our help!
