Historic Firehouse Mural for Ramona, California titled “Engine #2”

This mural is located at the site of Ramona’s original firehouse at 222 Ninth St. This is the 13th Ramona mural sponsored by the Ramona H.E.A.R.T. Mural Project and is dedicated to the fire brigades who have served the community since the origin of the first firehouse in the early 1950s. The mural is based on Engine No. 2, a 750 GPM Mack, triple-combination pumper purchased about the same time the firehouse was built. The engine was restored by the Poway Firemen’s Association in the 1970s and in the 1990s purchased by Ramona resident Darrell Beck, author of “On Memory’s Back Trail.” Darrell states in his book that he had “on many occasions used the engine’s heavy front bumper to knock down fence posts…often dragging the barbwire behind it.
The main goal of the Ramona H.E.A.R.T. Murals Project is to create a reason for passing tourists to STOP and enjoy Ramona’s beauty, charm, character, and heritage.
