Beaumont, TX 77701
The 24-foot, Dalmation-spotted fire hydrant marks the entrance to the Fire Museum of Texas. It was donated by the Walt Disney Company in 1999 to celebrate the re-release of "101 Dalmations". Assembled at Disney Land in Anaheim, CA, the hydrant weighs 4,500 lbs and can blast out 1,500 gallons of water a minute. It is constructed of fiber glass and re-enforced with 1,000 feet of steel. Did you know that the Dalmatian spots on the hydrant are copyrighted by Walt Disney?
At the time of construction, the fire hydrant was the world's largest. Now that title belongs to one in Columbia, South Carolina at 40 feet tall.
