Newspaper Clippings for
July, 1895

from a loose clipping, source unknown 4 July 1895
The dwelling house on the old Scott Smith farm, one mile north of Millburn, now owned and occupied by a Mr. Starkweather, was burned on Thursday evening. July 4. Dan Webb was passing by, at about 9 o'clock, and seeing smoke issuing from under the cornice, with difficulty awakened the family and got them out just as the flames burst from under the roof. The contents were mostly saved, but the building burned to the ground. How the fire started is a mystery, as there had been no fire near where the flames broke out for some length of time. The building was insured in the Millburn Mutual for $600.00.
