We are deeply grateful to our friend  Bill Donovan of Brockton for his kindness in offering Engine # 2 for sale to the Stoughton Historical Society.  Bill's efforts in preserving Engine # 2 over the years, and recent efforts to return it back home to Stoughton will be long remembered by the residents of Stoughton.
