In 2003 Badin Historic Museum, Inc., purchased a small lot adjacent to the proposed quadruplex museum.

Again with the help of generous donors, with grants, and through fundraising, the Firehouse Musuem was created. A team of volunteers led by David Summerlin, Jim Harrison, and Larry Drye, did much of the work.

The museum houses the 1937 Ford American LaFrance fire truck, hose reel, and a display of Badin Fire Department memorabilia. An exhibition of 250 photographs from ALCOA files depicts the history and development of the Yadkin/Pee Dee River Valley.
