Inscription. The Hose and Hand Pump Company was formed in 1884 as Round Rock’s first organized fire department. Money for equipment was raised through donations, picnics, dances, box suppers, and other fund drives. The first building constructed for Round Rock’s fire department was completed in 1892. About 1934, the department purchased its first piece of motor-driven equipment – a Model T Ford chassis. As one of the state’s oldest volunteer fire departments, it continues to provide significant service to the citizens of Round Rock.
 
Erected 1984 by the Texas State Historical Commission. (Marker Number 9332.)
