1875
West Brookside Fires - Williams Twp, Dauphin Co, PA
Detail >>
The blacksmith shop, carpentry shop, oil house, and fan house of the West Brookside Colliery near Williamstown were destroyed by fire on October 6, 1875. The breaker was saved through great exertions. This fire, along with one at Locust Gap the day before, and one at William Penn the day after, started at points where no fire was in use that day. The fires were believed to be the work of the Molly Maguires, carrying out an organized scheme of arson, while suspending, for the time being, their more desperate work of murder.

The horse turned around suddenly, upsetting the wagon. As the horse started down Market Street, the wagon righted itself again, but in passing the Union House had the shafts broken and lines torn by colliding with another team. It was finally stopped on the square at Main and Market Street when it was found that the box and single tree were also broken. The driver had jumped off before the wagon upset and was not injured.
