1899_fire_at_buck_hill.pdf
A terrible fire at Buck Hill 1899Dakota County Tribune May 5, 1899 reports a destructive fire swept Buck Hill last Friday night and Crystal Lake was so near dry it was feared that it might burn also. M. J Martin hitched up one of his standard bred trotters and drove to Rosemount after the fire company. The second assistant chief of the fire department informed him that the company never attended a fire without receiving at least one week's notice. Fortunately, the rain of a few days previous made the lake so damp that it did not burn. Buck Hill looks black and sullen as it towers towards the sky, but it will soon be clad in a robe of green and be ready to welcome the Rosemount boys and girls to its sun kissed slopes again.
