Bowling Green, IN Sawmill Boiler Explosion, Jan 1908
The Bowling Green saw-mill was completely wrecked by the explosion of the boiler, Friday, January 31, 1908, throwing out timber and fragments in various directions to the distance of several hundred feet. The mill had not been operated for some time and was started up on that day. That there were no fatalities nor personal injuries attending the disaster was owing to the absence of the employes at the dinner table at the time.
