200-Year-Old Farmhouse Destroyed On Christmas Day

On December 25, 1950 at 1:15 p.m. firemen raced to Shippensburg R. R. 3, Sandy Mount orchard for a house fire. A fire of undetermined origin completely destroyed a 200-year log house and its contents. Firemen from four companies battled the blaze for over four hours. A damage estimate was not available. The Vigilant Hose, Cumberland Valley Hose, Letterkenny and Franklin fire companies answered the alarm. The Vigilant’s were called back the next morning to extinguish a rekindle.

Merry Christmas Everyone.
