"Jumbo" is a 1911 Robinson Chemical Fire Engine completely restored by the City of Staunton Volunteer Fire Department. It is the only surviving fire truck of its kind in existence. This truck was the first motorized fire truck of its kind to be used in the State of Virginia. The fire department itself is one of the oldest in the State, organized in 1790. The museum, founded in 1982, houses a collection of fire service items, some from the Civil War era.
