WATERTOWN, N.Y. -- The chance of inclement weather did not stop the living history displays and entertainment at this year’s “Heritage Days” in Watertown.
Visitors got to grab a handle of a mid nineteenth century water pump, as they tried their hands at being a firefighter from that era. The First Annual Fire Truck Muster brought some twenty antique trucks, hand-drawn pumps, and drill cars to the event.
The City closed its Stone Street parking lot to let the county historical society place Cruise-In classic cars next to new cars and trucks.
One of the more interesting vehicles on display was this 1917 Ford Model T “C” van.
The owner says they were used as work vans and police wagons, but his wooden cab version is now a real rarity.
Brownville resident, Bob Loughery said, “I know there’s none that are all wood like this, so this is a one of a kind.”
Heritage Days is a fundraiser for the Jefferson County Historical Society.
