Title Postcard of a fire at 8 W. Main Street, Danville, Indiana, 1913
Description On June 6, 1913 a fire that began in the pressing room of Brewer Hadley's haberdashery quickly spread to the adjacent buildings on the north side of W. Main Street, just north of the Hendricks County Courthouse. Businesses affected included Bert Campbell's restaurant, Horace Milligan's barber shop, L. A. Barnett's book store, Dr. Herbert Sears' dental office, C. L. Thompson's drug store, and Walter White's photo studio (the fire destroyed all of his negatives). The Estep Block ("Hotel") on the corner of Main and Washington Streets survived and was most recently occupied by State Farm Insurance and Hendricks County Bail Bonds. The remainder of the 1/4 block was razed and replaced with new buildings.
