History

The Mountain Top Fire Company was organized in 1927 after 3 fires at the Twigg Store, Wilson home and the Barnett Store in one night. The company was incorporated in 1928. The property, which is the current location was donated by the Harbison Walker Brick Company. The company began with 8-10 round bottom buckets and a ladder. All of which were housed in the 1 car garage behind the RJ Barnett Store. The first “ fire truck” was a 1924 Page automobile donated by Cobb Pfouts. A “chemical tank” was mounted as well as hooks for the ladder and room for the buckets. The first permanent building, purchased for $ 80.00, was a hay barn in the nearby Mulligan Hollow area and was dismantled and moved to its current location. This part of the building is the current 2 bay fire truck side.

The first officers were:

President Charles Gearhart
V. Pres. Forest Gill
Secretary J.C. Malaker
Treasurer Paul Vaughn
Trustee s R.J. Barnett, J.W. Merryman, Edman Faust
Chief John Henry
Asst Chief James Moore
Asst Chief S. H. Swope
