The Corvallis Engine Company No. 1 was established on June 18, 1872 at a meeting at Fisher's Hall. The name of the company was changed later that year to Young America Engine Company No. 1. The organization appears to have had a social and benevolent function in addition to its fire fighting duties. The company was voluntary; members paid an initiation fee and dues at each meeting.
