HISTORY
This 1922 is one of only 14 known surviving Stoughton Fire Engines and the records indicate the only known 1922 in existence. �This rig was in service from the 1940's to about 1980 at the Dresser, Osceola, Garfield Fire Association in Dresser, Wisconsin. �It has been in private hands since then.

Stoughton Wagon Works was founded in 1865 near Stoughton, Wisconsin and was originally making horse drawn wagons. �By 1883 Stoughton was the largest employer in the area with over 250 people working at the plant. �The company began to make specialty trucks in the 1910's before a fire damaged much of their facility in 1919 - in large part due to a lack of fire trucks in the area. �In 1922, Stoughton produced their first fire truck - the "Community Fire Fighter" designed especially for small towns. They made fire trucks through the late 1920's before shifting to larger trailers.

See article at the link below for reference. �Search on "fire" to get the critical parts. �There is one error in the story as this truck was the one owned by Bill Killen and it's mistakenly listed as a 1923, but it is actually a 1922 (confirmed with Killen).
