BOGERT, Sally == Source: Crawfordsville Weekly Journal 28 Oct 1898 p 8 Last Monday fire broke out in the dive of Sally Bogert, in the north end and before the department arrived the house was a practical ruin. The inmates ran frantically about and managed to pul the half burned piano and their trunks out in the street. After the department had returned to the engine house the cruel, hungry flames broke out again, necessitating a second run.

Catholic Church (St. Charles) - Source: Crawfordsville Star Jan 20, 1898 The fire at the Catholic Church Thursday morning caught in the altar from the furnace in the basement. The fire department did perfect work or else the loss would be complete. As it was the altar was ruined at a loss of 41,000, while the interior was injured perhaps twice as much more. The loss is covered by insurance, still the congregation sustains a sad loss that money cannot replace at any price. Repairs will be made at once as soon as possible.

C'ville - downtown 1895 -- Source: Crawfordsville Star, June 4, 1896 There was a sort of an April shower about 5 o’clock on Thursday evening. In the midst of it there was a vivid flash of lightning that made every telephone bell ring and burnt out many electrical light transformers and telephones too. The deafening crash that followed caused many tradesmen to think their places of business had been struck and people ran out in the street to see what was hit. It was soon seen that a bolt of lightning had struck a heavy brick supporting column on the east transept of Center Church and while the bolt had not entered the church it had copped and hollowed out a great place four feet in circumference and then seemed to scatter in the air. The top of the rod was melted and turned down. The wonder is that the whole end of the church edifice was not knocked out.

LAMPSON -- (Lamson) -- Source: Crawfordsville Weekly Journal 28 August 1896 Waveland news – About 12:30 Saturday night the fire bell rang out and awoke the citizens from their slumbers to find Lampson & Gilland’s Livery Barn ablaze. The horses and rolling stock were gotten out, but the barn with the hay and corn was a total loss. The fire department did good work in saving other buildings. They moved into their new barn Monday and were ready for business. Samuel Shawl is tearing down the old building, preparatory to erected a nice dwelling.
