An early morning fire destroyed a flour and grain mill just east of Lititz On This Day in 1885. A young man discovered the fire on his way home. At first he thought the millers were working late but then realized it was in fact on fire. He sounded the alarm but the mill was totally destroyed.
The mill was owned by Abraham Huber of Manheim
On This Day is a prompt to further explore historical events.
