1939 Seagrave Suburbanite

Restoring a Piece of Durham, NH’s History

History of the Seagrave

The 1939 Seagrave Suburbanite was 1 of 4 firetrucks delivered to Durham, NH by Seagrave in 1931. All 4 firetrucks were delivered by rail.  

Unfortunately, during a parade in Wolfeboro, NH in 1978 the engine blew cracking 3 pistons and cylinder walls.  The truck was then put into storage on UNH campus. Saving it from being sold for scrap the Durham Firefighters bought the truck from the town in 1979..
