Tour Historic Fire Station (and its’ ghost!)

     It’s Tims’ Tours time again, and this one should be really fun!


     We’ve been invited to tour the Citys’ Historic Fire Station #3 and museum, in Sailboat Bend.

     The Station is chocked full of fun pictures, equipment, stories of many a fire and rescue from Fort Lauderdales’ past, and something out of this world (more on that in a minute).

     Our tour leader will be former Commissioner John Aurelius, who has been one of the main originators of the museum, and loves to show off his handiwork!

                                     Aurelius on left …..  Fire Trainee on right!

     And, the out of this world part ….  if we are lucky ( or unlucky), the stations’ resident ghost will scare the dickens out of us! The story goes that FireFighter Robert Knight died in his second week of service when he stepped into an electrically charged puddle and died. Some say he lives on in the Station, blows cold air on the backs of their necks, and turns on the Stations’ intercom at will !

     See you next Wednesday, May 15 …..  1022 W. Las Olas  ….5:30 pm sharp

         Please send me an e-mail to RSVP at, or just post a comment on the post saying   ……..
                                     See you there Tim !
