Antique Apparatus

1932 Hahn

The Hahn was originally purchased March 3, 1933. The new piece was welcomed to New Bloomfield with a supper and parade. The Hahn was the main pumper for many years. The Hahn had many runs until it was retired in August 1949. The Hahn was placed out of service and sold that month for $1,800 dollars.

Twenty one years later, the Hahn was repurchased by the department on August 17, 1970. The Hahn did not look as good as it did when it left, so a group of fireman decided that it would be nice to restore it. However, the department did not feel it was appropriate to spend money on frivolous expenses. So this group of young guys began to raise money themselves and set up a separate fund. The Hahn was restored in 1976 by a local antique enthusiast, Roland Dunkleburger, and help from the fire company.

The Hahn became a big parade attraction, but not as much as our hand pumper. New Bloomfield came home with many 1st place awards for best appearing antique and best appearing company owned antique.

The Hahn has it’s own special bay in the firehouse. It is housed in the original bay, with the hard wood floors and a display case with many of the trophies on display. So if you are ever in New Bloomfield, stop by the firehouse on High Street and ask to see the Hahn. You won’t be disappointed you did.
