Towanda Fire Department, 101 Elm Street, Towanda, Pa. Bradford County Station 15. Bucket brigades started in Towanda borough around 1837, but the Franklin Engine Company No. 1 didn't organize until April 11, 1854. Then came the Naiad Engine and Hose Company No. 2 a year later, April 28, 1855. Followed by the Lin-ta Steam Fire Company No. 3 on September 28, 1857. They were located on Poplar Street. Next in service was the Mantaua Hook & Ladder Company No. 4 in March of 1871. They were last heard of in 1917. Last was the H.W. Hawes Fire Company No. 5. Organized May 2, 1892 and disbanded in 1935. Companies 2 and 3 merged to form the Naiad-Linta Fire Company. Finally in 1999 the Franklin's and the Naiad-Linta's merged to become the Towanda Fire Department. The old station, at 724 Main Street, is now used by the borough public works.If there are any other old stations in town I missed them. And I found no record of when these building were built.
