Alexandria, VA – If you or your kids love firetrucks, the Friendship Firehouse Festival was something else! In fact, the two 1850s-era firetrucks, which are slated to be completely restored to their original glory, were visited by hundreds at the annual event.
“We’re lucky to have the Prettyman fire engine,” Gretchen Bulova, director of the Office of Historic Alexandria, told The Zebra. “We’re going to restore them both to look completely original.”
The firehouse was built in 1855, and the festival included a tour of the building, music, free food and drinks, and games.
