First constructed in 1899 and extensively renovated as a museum in 1995, the Reily is a beautiful Victorian-style fire station. As with all structures, time and especially weather take a toll on the now 23-year-old rebuilt firehouse.  Within the past year, the PNFM has faced expensive emergency repairs on its roof and bell tower.

While funds have been diverted to minimal repairs to maintain the integrity of the building and its contents, more work needs to be done, including the replacement of all windows.  These windows are wood, are at end of their life expectancy and deteriorate First constructed in 1899 and extensively renovated as a museum in 1995, the Reily is a beautiful Victorian-style fire station.

While funds have been diverted to minimal repairs to maintain the integrity of the building and its contents, more work needs to be done, including the replacement of all windows.  These windows are wood, are at end of their life expectancy and deteriorating rapidly.

Currently, the volunteers of the PNFM are raising funds in a number of ways, including participation in “dine out” events at local establishments, solicitation of museum members and the general public, and seeking corporate sponsorships. Of the estimated $96,000 dollars needed for the necessary repairs, approximately 1% has been raised thus far.

We need you! The Reily answered the call for help for 81 years before becoming the museum. Now it is our turn to answer her plea for assistance. Please click on the donate button on our web page, or contact us directly to learn more about how you can help.
