Fire Damages The Sherman Hotel

On September 16, 1870 at 4:00 a.m. firemen raced to the W. N. Shoop’s Drug Store (located in the Sherman Hotel building). An arson fire was contained to the basement under the drug store. The engineer of a passing freight train turned in the alarm after he spotted smoke. A damage estimate was not available. The Vigilant and Cumberland Valley Fire companies answered the alarm.
