The Chillicothe Fire Department mural features historic scenes from 1886 to the 1920s. Chillicothe has a tradition of possessing an effective fire fighting department and the scenes in this mural depict the department's equipment and operation over the early decades of its existence as a part of city government. The team of horses, Joe & Dan, set the world's record in 1898 for their speed in responding to a fire.
