The Clatsop County Historical Society has announced there will be free admission to the Uppertown Firefighters Museum, 2968 Marine Drive, from noon to 3 p.m. Saturdays in July.

The museum houses an extensive collection of fire-fighting equipment used by Astoria firefighters from 1873 to 1963, including the rare 1876 LaFrance Company horse-drawn hook and ladder wagon and the 1921 Stutz Corporation pumper truck, which had arrived in time to play an important role in the battle against the great fire of 1922.
