Circa 1925

—Courthouse Square Walking Trail —

One of the city's biggest fires occurred
in the early 1900's when a series of
businesses in frame buildings on the
east side of Court Street were destroyed
by fire. Volunteer firefighters brought
water from Harvard yards by train to
help fight the fire but were unsuccessful
in saving any of the buildings. Kerosene
used for lighting was the possible cause
of fire. The current structures were built
by Mrs. Josie Rhodes and her daughter,
Lucy Rhodes, who rebuilt the buildings
with one-story brick units separated by
fireproof walls.
