In July 1848, the Foxcroft Village Fire Company was chartered. Dover citizens soon asked to join. In 1850, it was voted to purchase an engine at a cost of $903. The last time this engine was known to have fought in a fire was 1895 when the Mayo, now the Ward Building, caught fire. Equipment in the Department has grown since its origins 150 years ago.
