Quincy Hose Company No. 1

In 1875 the first organized Fire Department for Quincy was established as the Quincy Hose Company No. 1. The equipment consisted of a hose cart pulled by 14 men, with two pushers. Sometime between then and 1879 a station was built on the south side of Main Street next to the newspaper office.
