Union Foundry Destroyed

On March 18, 1854 at 8:00 a.m. citizens were heard the cry of fire for the Union Foundry. Strong winds carried sparks from the blast to the roof of the south wing causing a fire that destroyed the building containing the foundry and machine shop. A damage estimate was not available. The Vigilant Fire and Alert Fire Companies answered the alarm.
