Historic Sites of Manitoba: Souris Fire Department Museum (Souris)

The horse-drawn, gasoline-fired fire engine displayed here was purchased in 1904 by the Town of Souris, from the Waterous Engine Works Company of St. Paul, Minnesota. It cost $4,000. The engine served Souris and the Rural Municipality of Glenwood until 1918. It is still in operating condition.

In 1987, the pumper was restored by members of the Souris Fire Department, with financial aid from service clubs and Souris citizens. The firemen are listed on a plaque mounted on the side of this building beside the Souris Swinging Bridge.
