Finding No. 21   Railway Structures Destroyed (Mainly) by Fire

Brockville Westport and Sault Ste. Marie Station at Newboro Hit by Lightning August 1892

Brockville Recorder 25 August 1892

Preparations are being pushed rapidly ahead for the erection of a much more handsome station than the old one destroyed by lightning two weeks ago.  Having every confidence in the officials of the road, and realizing the great amount of push, energy and perseverance of its very able manager, Mr. R.G. Hervey, we are satisfied the new one will be an honor to the village and a credit to the B.W. & S.S.M. R.R.
