Camp Legion Building Burns

On August 25, 1996 at 5:26 a.m. firefighters were dispatched to a building fire at Camp Legion, Stillhouse Hollow Road, Greene Township. When firefighters arrived they found a one story frame building 90% involved. For the next few hours their efforts were concentrated on protecting the woods and nearby buildings. The fire was ruled suspicious and a damage estimate was not available. The West End Fire and Rescue, Vigilant Hose, Fayetteville, Cumberland Valley Hose and Franklin fire companies battled the blaze. Also during the day at 4:44 a.m. 52, 53 and 54 answered an auto accident for a car into a house at Walnut Bottom Road and Ritner Highway. At 3:36 p.m. 52, 53 and 54 responded to smoke in the building at 111 N. Earl Street and then at 10:05 p.m. Co.'s 54 and 7 responded to an auto accident on Interstate 81. one mile north of Exit 8 in Greene Twp that resulted in a double fatal.

I can remember this place went there in the 6th grade for one of those educational trips. Had a great time. This was a real fun place. Now all the buildings are gone and it is just woods.
