The New Jersey Firemen's Home was established in 1898 through the generosity of the Lathrop Family and by act of the New Jersey State Legislature to care for the aged, indigent and disabled firefighters of New Jersey. It is located at 565 Lathrop Ave, Boonton Township, NJ 07005
The Firemen's Home is also home to our 8,000 sq. ft., two-story museum, which opened in May 1985. Steamers, ornate hose carts, and fire trucks are among the many items on display for all to see. The New Jersey Firemen's Home Museum is opened daily 8AM to 4PM - Admission is free!
