Spectacular Blaze
Razes Owen's Tavern
A spectacular early evening fire
completely razed the modern struc
ture formerly known as the Owen’s
Tavern, three miles north of Bluff
ton on the Dixie highway, last
Thursday.
Loss in the blaze was estimated
at $8,000, only part of w’hich is
covered by insurance.
Starting in the basement, the fire
had gained so much headway by the
time it was discovered that nothing
could be saved. Bluffton and Mt.
Cory fire departments were called,
but the entire structure w-as in
flames by the time they arrived.
Firemen were successful, however,
in preventing spread of the flames
to five overnight tourist cabins lo
cated at the rear of the razed build
ing.
Mr. and Mrs. Owen Barchett have
been using the former tavern as a
home, where they operated a gaso
line filling station and the cottages.
They did not discover the fire until
it had gained too much headway to
be controlled.
The general idea of the bicycle is
suggested in ancient carvings, but
the machine was not successfully de
veloped until the Nineteenth cen
tury.
