THE EARLVILLE FIRE WHISTLE!

If you lived in town prior to 1985 you will remember the fire whistle that would blow in order to summons the firemen to the station.  In addition to that important job, the whistle was also blown regularly at 7am. 12 noon, 1pm, 6pm and 9pm.  As kids, many of us depended on that whistle to inform us when to report home for lunch and dinner, and to leave our friend’s house and get home at night.  The whistle was removed in 1985 and has been stored in Bob Goodbred’s shed ever since.  It came home to the Museum this week.
