History of the Sandyston Township Volunteer Fire Department

On June 22, 1953, the Hainesville Methodist Church was having a Father/Son Dinner.  A group gathered outside the church and mention was made about the dilapidated condition of the old Methodist Church across the road.  Due to lack of funds, the Hainesville Methodist Church was unable to keep up with the maintenance of the former church building.  A public meeting was held July 27, 1953 and it was decided to organize and incorporate a fire department and community center.  Calvin A. Agar, Frank B. Ayers, and Harry C. Harper were designated as Trustees for the purpose of incorporation.  Officers appointed were Larry Ellet, President; Abe Aber, Vice President.; George Barnard, Secretary; Benjamin Jager, Treasurer; Edward Spears, Chief; Edward Hull, Jr., Asst. Chief; and Rev. Harold Green, Chaplain.  A 24-hour celebration was held to commemorate the opening of the building on July 3, 1954.  This building served as a firehouse and community center for 50 years until the Sandyston Township Municipal Building and Fire Department Complex was built across the street and dedicated on September 25, 2004.  The former fire department buiding was sold to St. Thomas the Apostle Church to be used as their education center.
