Samenvatting

A decade by decade history of the Cherrydale Volunteer Fire Department, founded in 1898 in Alexandria (now Arlington) County, in Virginia. 312 pages, 245 illustrations, including photos, letters, maps, and copies of the Minute Books. This book provides a brief history of the Cherrydale Volunteer Fire Department (CVFD), which is Arlington County’s oldest fire fighting company, owns the oldest firehouse, and remains very active in Arlington! Located in the Cherrydale, community, the CVFD began as an informal twelve member bucket brigade in 1898, and has persevered to become a modern, efficient, fire fighting unit. The CVFD also owns the historic Cherrydale Fire Hall, which is the oldest Fire Station in our County! Through the years, the CVFD has been an important part of the community. Many of its founders, and most of the early members, were moving forces in forming our community, and their is some genealogical information on these families. For well over 115 years, the men and women of the Cherrydale Volunteer Fire Department have served their community in many ways; from fighting fires and saving lives, raising funds for the Library and schools, taking care of the poorer residents of the community, to sponsoring Christmas parties, parades, bingo, dances, and Minstrel shows, the volunteers have always been ready to do what was necessary to make our community a better, safer place to live. The book also includes stories of the early fires, and discusses the equipment owned by the Department.
