Buildings - Houghton Fire Hall

Buildings, Public Buildings, Fire Stations, Persons, Revealed here are some of the men who scampered about the top of the old Continental fire hall as though they were jack rabbits. According to Chief James Chappell, these men contributed to the removal of the bell. Some are shown at the top of the former steeple which also, at one time, housed a clock somewhat similar to the one now telling the time of day in Hancock. They are Fred Mattila, Butch Keranen, Al Messner, Jackie Heikkinen, Fred Sargent, Chickie Hannon and James Lightfoot. Seven of the 18 men of the department participated in the bell's removal.
