This museum is in a old firehouse from the 1880's. There was a quilt show, but I found the other items more interesting. The building is in the French part of St. Charles, north of the city center.
window from an old church
pieces of the World Trade Center, a New York
fire truck, and other pieces from the
World Trade Center
