No alarm bells ringing for fire museum in Jeffersonville

Tourism bureau dedicates money to museum in flux



Work is already underway to transform the building into a museum space. And events for the future museum are already lined up. Plans are already in the works to bring a national convention to the fire museum and Jeffersonville next year.

Peters said an annual convention for the fire museum network seminar is planned for Jeffersonville next year because of the museum. Sixty to 80 visitors, with an economic impact of at least $75,000, are expected for the seminar, he said.

He added that neighbors are pleased about the plans to have something move into the vacant building.

“There’s hardly anything harder on a neighborhood than buildings sitting empty,” Peters said. “We’re very pleased these buildings will be put to good use. We have no doubt that this will be positively received by the community. We think we have the enthusiastic support of the mayor and other people.”
