Brockway Volunteer Hose Company History

Brockwayville was a small community nestled in the Little Toby Valley of Jefferson County, boasting a population near 1200 and growing was the scene of a meeting in the early 1900 of a group of young men interested in forming a Fire Company.

The only equipment for fighting fire available was a two wheel hose cart and 500 feet of hose, purchased by the borough in 1898.

Twenty seven young men met in Heiges Hall to form an organization to fight fire. The hose cart was housed in an addition to the main building that stood between the Railroad and Toby Creek on the south side of Main Street.

The members met on January 16th, 1904 and after the object of the meeting was stated proceeded to perfect an organization by the election of Harry Lindy as temporary chairman and Alex Adams as temporary secretary.
