Featured Item: The museum draws light to a bell from Talladega’s first fire truck from 1914.

 

Billy Miller generously loaned this fire bell to the Hall of Heroes. It has been a treasured part of the Miller family for decades.

Mr. Miller, a member of the Talladega Fire Department for four years, was for 16 years connected with the City Police Department, part of which time he was assistant police chief.

The City presented him with the bell from Talladega's first fire truck, and the bell hung on a pole on his property.
