Biographical or historical data
The Virginia Fire and Police Museum was founded in 1976 in an 1883 Richmond, Virginia, firehouse. The building is located on a site where firehouses have been located since 1849. The current building, which served as the home for Steamer Company number 5 until 1968 and for the 3rd police station until 1898, was slated for demolition in 1976. However, the building was saved to serve as the home for the museum. The museum offers visitors a lesson in police and firefighting architecture, uniforms, and equipment, and provides an educational program on fire and life safety. The museum was closed as a result of state budget cuts in 2002.
