Sometime in the fall of 1909, William J. Hoffmann and Christian W. Wentzler called a meeting with a handful of their friends to Pennell’s Hotel that was located on the east side of Hicksville Road, further south of where Sunrise Highway is today. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss the possibility of organizing a volunteer fire department in Massapequa. The idea received the positive support of about seven or eight other local men.
