North Hampton, NH Boarding House Fire, Jun 1912


Shortly after 2 o'clock this Tuesday morning fire destroyed the meadow Brook Inn at Little River, North Hampton.

The building was used for a summer boarding house and was owned by Frank Brown.

As it was unocupied[sic] at the time, the origin of the fire is a mystery.

When discovered the fire had gained good headway. The chemical engine belonging to the town was brought out, but owing to the headway of the fire was of very little service.

The building and all of its contents were entirely consumed and the loss is estimated at upwards of $3000 partially insured.
