Yountville in Napa County, California — The American West (Pacific Coastal)
Yountville's First Fire House
In 1946, the then fire chief died and for a time his widow served as fire chief. During this time the County put some three inch hyrdants on the Veterans Home water main and the firemen had a source of water to fill their truck.
In 1948 the County took over the operation of the Yountville Fire Station and Henry Hill was sent to be the County Fire Chief with volunteers as his crew. In 1960 the County selected ten men to serve as volunteer firemen under the Chief. In 1963 these men were released from duty. This ended over 100 years of volunteer fire service to the Town of Yountville by many courageous men and women of the area. This site is dedicated
