FIRE DESTROYS OLD STONE SCHOOLHOUSE

The old grade school building at Morland was destroyed by fire early Thanksgiving morning. Fire was first discovered about 5:30 a.m. and had made such headway that it was too late to save the building or any of the contents. Due to a strong southeast wind the blaze caused considerable danger to nearby residents. The Avon Burns house was in a very bad location and Mr. Burns worked hard to save his new home, where hot shingles and sparks fell on the house. Many other parts of town also had to be protected from the sparks. The building was a two-story stone structure which was built in 1912 by John Searl's father, Steve Searl. It consisted of four rooms, two upstairs and two down. The larger per cent of Morland and surrounding citizens received their education in the schoolhouse. Harry Minium recently purchased the building and it was used for storage. At the time of the fire, it contained about 1000 bales of alfalfa which he had purchased. It means quite a loss to Mr. Minium and folks in Morland were sorry to see this old landmark for some many years, destroyed by fire.
