The Vintage Fire Museum and Safety Education Center, located at 723 Spring Street in Jeffersonville across Michigan Avenue from the Clark County Museum, features a nationally known collection of firefighting equipment originally started by enthusiast Fred Conway. The collection was purchased by Friends of the New Albany Fire Museum and opened in that city in 2010, but moved to Jeffersonville in 2012. The museum includes a Safety Education Center, a store, a room on regional firefighting history, and an area honoring firefighters who have given their lives in fighting fires in addition to the major exhibit area.
