Inscription.  During the Depression years, the original all-wooden pumper wagon was replaced with an all-steel, 1920's-era vehicular chassis and wheels. Much of the original firefighting equipment was transferred to this stronger and longer wagon, and water tanks were added. The Round Top - Warrenton VFD donated this 2nd generation pumper wagon in the mid-1990's to the Round Top Area Historical Society. It was last used in the early 1960's.
 
Erected by Round Top Area Historical Society.
