100 years ago, Mr. Green's summer hotel on Marble Point Road burned down, late on a Sunday night. Mr. & Mrs. Green had started a fire to take the chill off the night air. After they retired, the kitchen was aflame. Most of the other cottages on the lake were closed, but word spread quickly to the village and help was soon coming.
Mr. Alphonse Shannon was passing by with his mother, and with his help, a large amount of furniture was saved. The loss was partly covered by insurance.
