Constitution and By-Laws, Genesee Hose Co. No. 5, Wellsville, New York. Organized June 4, 1874 as Genesee Hose and Steamer Company. Adopted April 13, 1914. Amended November 9. 1931. Includes list of Active Members and Officers.

The Steamer was purchased, May 18th, 1874 of the City of Titusville, Pa. at a cost of about 33,000. The first fire at which it was used was at the burning of King's Blacksmith Shop, at the east end of Main St., February 9th, 1875. This day was a memorable one in the history of the Fire department, not alone because the engine was first brought into requisition in Wellsville on that occasion, but for the reason that the weather was so intensely cold (the thermometer indicating twenty-six degrees below zero) that water froze in the hose and rendered it useless.
