Stable And Contents Destroyed

On March 19, 1893 at 6:00 p.m. a cry of fire was heard over town. Citizens soon learned the blaze was to the rear of the M. E. Church. Children playing with matches started a fire that destroyed a stone stable and its contents. Firemen were on the scene quickly with two streams of water playing on the blaze. A damage estimate was not available. The Vigilant Hose and Cumberland Valley Hose companies answered the alarm.
