The "Home of the Champions"

The Union Ladder Company won the Worlds Hook and Ladder Championship in competition with Westborough, Leominster, and Spencer, at Worcester on September, 1891, in 58 seconds. The team had to run 220 yards, bring back a ladder wagon, and then hoist a man to a 28-foot platform. In 1892, the company won against Attleboro in 56 seconds. The team inspired the reference to Natick as the "Home of Champions."
