This is the oldest continuously used active volunteer fire company in the United States. It was organized in 1752 as Britannia Fire Company. The original firehouse sits next to the present firehouse building which dates back to 1892. The original fire house has been restored and serves as a museum containing an original steamer engine, leather buckets, lanterns and other memorabilia.

When you consider the size of Mt Holly, it's amazing that the department is *STILL* 100% volunteer.
