Dedicated: October 20, 2015

The marker commemorates the first volunteer fire department organized in Hanover Park. The Ontarioville Volunteer Fire Department was established on April 3, 1928 at this location with a $282 collection from the community. The first station remained at this location until demand became too high and funds were raised to build a new firehouse. In July of 2000, the district merged into the Village of Hanover Park.
