Mystery Trip – Last Resort Fire Department Museum

Over the last few months, our communities across the country have taken a variety of fun trips!

Last month, Merrill Gardens at Queen Anne (Seattle, WA) went on a “Mystery Trip”. Prior to the trip, the residents had no idea where they were going! The trip took them into the heart of Seattle – to the Last Resort Fire Department Museum in Pioneer Square.

About The Last Resort Fire Department Museum
On July 12th, 2008, in conjunction with the 2008 Pioneer Square Fire Festival, a new fire museum was created in Seattle when the Last Resort Fire Department moved a portion of its collection of apparatus and artifacts into Seattle Fire Department Headquarters in the heart of Seattle’s Pioneer Square.  The station, built in 1928, is a four-story, ten-bay facility, that for eighty years, had been the home of both Seattle Fire Department Headquarters and Fire Station #10.

They had a fun day looking at the trucks and learning more about the fire department’s past and present. Here are a few shots from the day!

Our residents can not wait for next month’s “Mystery Trip!” Where do you think they will go next?
