The “Old Lady” is a hand tub pumper owned by the United Fire Company from 1859 to approximately 1880. The pumper was built in Philadelphia, Pa. for the Mechanical Fire Company of Baltimore City in 1821. The pumper was rebuilt by the Rodgers Company of Baltimore in 1847. The Uniteds purchased the “Old Lady” from the Mechanical Fire Company in 1859 after the Mechanical Company received one of the first steam pumpers in Baltimore. Shortly after selling the “Old Lady”, the Mechanical Fire Company was absorbed into the Baltimore City Fire Department and became Engine 4. The “Old Lady” was also owned by the United Volunteer Fire Company of Libertytown from approximately 1880 to 1932. Until 2004, the “Old Lady” was in a museum of the Baltimore Equitable Society until the museum closed. The late Lydia Butterworth, past Secretary and Life Member of the Uniteds, deserves credit for making sure the “Old Lady” came home. The “Old Lady” is presently stored and hopefully will be on public display at the proposed Frederick County Fire Museum in Emmitsburg.
