Around 1926-29 a new lightbulb was screwed into the outlet
of the Mangum Fire Department. Firemen came, and went. The light
was turned on , and left on without much thought, until one day
after all the other bulbs were replaced on a regular basis, this
little one kept burning.
There is no camera, no fanfare about it. It just keeps working!
People are welcome to visit, just don't bother the firemen.
Fortunetly I was able to visit "the Bulb" and the
nice folks of Mangum in August of 2007. Please follow this link
to my Mangum tribute page.
A special thanks to Roadside America for providing the info and
