Town fire

Like most historic towns, Wilkeson suffered through terrible fires. Blazes claimed the business district in 1910, 1912 and 1914. In the photograph at left, fire takes one side of Church Street; subsequent blazes took the other side of the wooden structures. - Photo provided by Wilkeson Centennial Committee
