150 Years of Service: McGregor Hook and Ladder Co. No. 1 marks milestone


McGregor Hook and Ladder Co. No. 1 was incorporated in 1872. This early image shows the department at a parade or celebration near Triangle Park. Firefighters will celebrate the 150th anniversary similarly on June 25, with a parade at noon. (Photo courtesy of McGregor Historical Society)

Tom Sauer (left) became a firefighter in 1985 and has been McGregor Hook and Ladder’s chief since 2020. Dan Bickel, also a long-time chief, is the longest serving member, having joined in 1974. The two—standing behind the early triangle fire alarm first used in 1874—recently reflected on the department’s 150-year milestone. (Photo by Audrey Posten)

In a town as rich in history as McGregor, it’s not surprising early fire department artifacts exist today. That includes the original ladder cart and 1927 fire truck, the first McGregor ever purchased. A display at the McGregor Historical Museum (shown here) has an early helmet, jacket and leather bucket. The firefighters also have the original minute book, older badges and helmets and other memorabilia.

Thirteen individuals made up the original McGregor Hook and Ladder Co. No. 1. Today, 25 men make up the crew, and there are several honorary members, said chief Tom Sauer. The department is shown responding to a fire in McGregor last year. (Photo by Audrey Posten)

Daisy Kay has both polished and rough stones, fossils and more. Some pieces are larger, but smaller tumbles are available as well. “You can find a big statement piece here, but if you just want some pocket crystals, we have those too,” noted Myah Davis, who operates the shop with sister Ashley Schoenfeldt.

The sisters are happy to answer questions about their rocks and instruct customers to select crystals that call to them.
