Lyndonville, VT Fire, Nov 1894


A careful revision of the aggregate of insurance carried by the sufferers in Tuesday's fire at Lyndonville, Vt., places it at $120,000. Twenty-six buildings were burned, including nine mercantile blocks, a hotel, two livery stables, five dwellings, six barns and three storehouses. In all 31 business firms and 28 families were burned out, the only business block left being a brick one on Main street, with one grocery store and one furniture store in it.. Gov. Woodbury had signed a bill authorizing its water service. The citizens will probably rebuild with brick and expend the $40,000 in protection. There is a very general hopeful feeling, although the loss exceeds the insurance considerably, and a few had no insurance. Rebuilding will begin at once.
