The Arcanum Ahrens-Fox Steam Engine:



The Ahrens Fox Steam Engine is the jewel of the department and town. Built in Cincinnati Ohio, this steamer was the first item purchased by the Arcanum Fire Department in 1881.


With thanks to the Arcanum Area Business Association, who made the restoration of this great Steam Engine possible.
