Engine One is a 1925 Stoughton. The Engine was donated to the

changing the name of the Village from AREA to Mundelein. The
original price tag was $6,700.00. It carried four firefighters, two in
the front seat and two standing on the back tail board. It can pump
350-gallons per minute, and the water tanks hold 75-gallons
each. The Chicago Fire Department took original delivery of the
truck and tested it at Navy Pier, at the end of June 1925. Then on
July 17, 1925 a dedication ceremony was held at the St. Mary of the
Lake Seminary. It served the Village for a little over twenty years
before it became too costly to keep it in service. The engine was
sold and then moved around the country before it was rescued from
the scrap yard by retired Mundelein Fire Lt. Jim Carew. Lt. Carew
began the restoration, when the Village re-purchased it. As a Village
Centennial Legacy Project, Lt. Carew supervised the frame up
restoration.  He was assisted by Mundelein Firefighters that restored
the ladders, built the battery boxes and refinished the antique brass
fire extinguishers.
